Indebtedness to the University
Students who incur debts to UMUC must clear them to be permitted to register. Requests for services (including transcripts and diplomas) are denied until all debts have been paid. Outstanding debts are collected against refunds due the student. After a reasonable period of time, uncollected debts are forwarded to the Central Collection Unit of the State Attorney General's Office.
If a student fails to pay charges incurred with UMUC, UMUC has the authority to deem that account delinquent and transfer it to the State of Maryland Central Collection Unit. UMUC has also received authorization from the Board of Regents to charge students' delinquent accounts a 17% collection fee and/or all attorney or court costs incurred by the University. Once a past-due balance with UMUC has been transferred to the state Central Collection Unit, the student's information is reported to a credit bureau. More information may be accessed from the Student Accounts Web page.
