Late Payment Penalties
  • The University must receive the full amount due on or before the bill’s due date. If full payment is not received by the due date, a late payment penalty of 1.5% of the amount past due will be assessed, and future registration and continuing enrollment will be jeopardized.
  • A new late payment penalty will appear both as a new transaction, and in the late payment penalty box on the summary line. Adjustments to previously assessed late payment penalties will appear as a new transaction and will be included as either a new credit or new charge on the summary line.
  • If Penn accepts payment that contains or reflects “paid in full”, or other restrictive endorsements, Penn does not lose any of its rights to collect any amount due.

Returned Checks

A check not honored by the bank is subject to a $30 returned check charge. Any balance unpaid on the student account as a result of the returned check is subject to a late payment penalty. The University reserves the right to require a cashier or certified check on future payments. The University does not accept post-dated checks.

Non-Sufficient Funds

A payment returned for non-sufficient funds is subject to a $30 NSF Fee and any unpaid balance as a result of a NSF payment will be subject to a late payment penalty.
