MaconCatalog : Financial Information : Debts
No official records are released, no future registration is allowed, and the faculty considers no student as a candidate for graduation until all indebtedness to the University has been settled. The Bursar’s Office is authorized to apply to the student's debt any funds needed from the student's scholarships, loans, state grants, or any other student financial aid (unless prohibited by regulations governing said aid.) Students with outstanding indebtedness will not be eligible to register for subsequent semesters and may be subject to late penalties and interest charges.
Failure to pay any sums due to Mercer University may result in the submission of the students account to Mercer University’s Internal Collection Department. If such action is required, the student will be liable to pay a late fee of $5.00 for each thirty (30) days that the payment is past due and interest will accrue monthly at the rate of up to 9% for the life of the balance. In the event the student account is submitted to an outside collection agency, the student will be liable for the fees of any collection agency, which may be based on a percentage at the maximum of 33.3% of the debt, and all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, Mercer University incurs in such collection efforts. Any account placed with collections may be reported to the Credit Bureau and NSLDS.
