Past Due Accounts

All tuition and fees are due on the first day of classes.  Any accounts remaining unpaid after the due date are considered delinquent.  The University reserves the right to withdraw students where no attempt has been made to pay the account or make deferred payment arrangements.  Students will be notified by email shortly after the first day of classes by the Office of the Registrar of their pending withdrawal. 

Students who fail to respond to this notification may be withdrawn from all of their classes at the discretion of the Registrar's Office. De-registration will proceed 1 week after the due date if a student has not paid his/her account or made payment arrangements with the Accounts Receivable office in person, by telephone at 250-960-6390 or email at accountsreceivable@unbc.ca.

The University will retain the non-refundable registration deposit of $100 to cover administrative costs associated with registration. 

Any student failing to provide written notification to the Office of Registrar of their complete withdrawal from a course or slate of courses will be assessed full tuition fees for those registered courses and receive grades of "F" on their transcript.

All past due notifications are now generated and posted to the student web account at www.unbc.ca/login  at 30, 60 and 90 day intervals to notify students of the current term balance outstanding on their account. Accounts outstanding for over 90 days will be sent a notice of pending collection action and where payment is not received within the grace period of 30 days, the account shall be assigned to an external collection agency.

A financial hold will be placed on all accounts with remaining balances 30 days from the due date preventing future registration, the release of official academic transcripts and the receipt of parchments.  In addition, late payment service charges at the monthly rate of 2% of the principal amount outstanding will be assessed when the account reaches 30 days past due and every 30 days subsequent until the account is paid in full.
