Returned Payments

According to WI Stat. 943.24, a student can be fined and required to appear in court for issuing a worthless check (including online transactions).  The university will assess a $20 service charge for any payment returned as unpaid.  This is in addition to the charge your bank may assess. 

If your check is returned NSF (non-sufficient funds) you may lose your check writing privileges and access to credit with the university.  Your account will also be returned to the same status as it was before the payment was received, so interest and/ or administrative fees may be charged.  In addition, your classes may be at risk of cancellation.


If the unpaid payment is the result of a bank error, the bank must send a letter of explanation to:
