Statement of Financial Responsibility
Students who do not pay their account in full by each semester due date will not be able to register until their account is fully paid. Past due tuition/fee accounts will accrue interest (9% annual rate) on the unpaid balance until paid in full. Students with delinquent accounts will not be able to pre-register for subsequent terms, receive copies of their grades or transcripts, or receive diplomas until the university receives full payment.
The Business Office will send email notifications to the student's Dordt email at the beginning of each month. A student's account can be discussed with the parent(s) or other responsible party upon written request of the student. Requests can be made by returning the Student Account Release form (note: this form does not allow for the release of information regarding grades or transcripts. Please contact the Registrar's Office for release of any academic information).
Note to students: It is important to understand that as the student you are responsible for coordinating payment of your account. This means it is your responsibility to:
- File all necessary paperwork for financial aid in a timely manner.
- Communicate with your parents or other responsible party if they will be paying for your account.
- Contact the Business Office if you are having difficulty paying your bill.
