Payment Policy and Installment Plan

Payment Policy

Tuition and fees are due in full by the term due date unless the student is enrolled in the IU installment payment plan. Students registering after the term cut-off date must make payment in full or according to the installment payment plan. Once registered, a student assumes financial responsibility for charges. It is the responsibility of all financial aid recipients to ensure that their financial aid is available by the term due date.

Students are not permitted to attend classes or occupy University housing until full payment or installment payment has been remitted. Late fees in the amount of $30 are assessed monthly. Students with outstanding financial obligations will not be permitted to register for future terms, receive grades, teacher certifications, transcripts or diploma.

Collection Practice

Immaculata University reserves the right to assign outstanding account balances to a collection agency.  At the end of each term, students with an outstanding balance on their accounts are sent a letter from Immaculata requesting payment in full.  If payment is not received within a specified timeframe, the accounts are placed with a letter writing agency, which issues reminder letters to the students on behalf of the University.  If an outstanding balance remains after the series of letters are sent, Immaculata makes one last attempt to collect payment prior to assigning the accounts to a collection agency.

Once an account is assigned to a collection agency, all communication by the student must be made through the collection agency.  Accounts are reported to credit bureaus.  Students are responsible to reimburse Immaculata for fees of any collection agency, which may be based on a percentage of the debt up to a maximum of 40% of the debt, and all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney's fees, incurred in the collection efforts.  All payments must be made directly to the collection agency; Immaculata cannot accept direct payments once an account is placed with a collection agency.  The account is considered paid in full when the total debt is paid.

IU Installment Payment Plan

You may choose to enroll in the IU Installment Payment Plan, which distributes payments across due dates within the term.  There is a $25 non-refundable installment plan enrollment fee payable at time of enrollment; this fee is not eligible to be included in the installment payment plan. The $25 fee is due each term. Students must submit an Installment Plan Enrollment Form each term.  Forms are available on the Business Office website and on MyIU under Campus Life, Business Office. To avoid account holds and a monthly late fee of $30, please remit payment at time of submitting the form. For your convenience payments are accepted online. Log on to MyIU and click on SSIU (Self-Service IU) to pay online.  The minimum account balance to qualify for the installment plan is $200.
