Non Payment of Fees or Charges

A late fee will be applied to your student account for course fee payment received by the University after the payment due dates.
SANCTIONS will be applied to your student account when there are outstanding fees or charges. If you have a sanction on your account you will not be able to register for classes and re-enrolling, and access to academic and administrative services may be barred.

The sanction will also prevent access to results and academic transcripts, attendance to graduation ceremony and issuing of awards. If you are enrolled as an international student, your student visa is also at risk.

Once the fees or charges have been paid the sanction will be removed.

With effect from Semester 2, Year 2011, by each study period’s census date*, if a student account remains outstanding and students fails to set up an alternative financial arrangement with the University, his / her enrolment will be cancelled by the University at the census date*.
