*If a student contacts our office (before they are sent to collections) wanting to negotiate
the possibility of setting up a payment plan they must fill out and sign a promissory note
form. Payment Plans can only be initiated under these terms:

      A maximum plan of 4 payments or less
      A maximum plan not to exceed 12 months

Proper receipt filing and mailings will be recorded and backed-up in students file.

All payment plans will be reviewed and signed by the Director.

If the student does not follow through with their payment plan, the SFS Office will
attempt to contact the student for payment. Two consecutive missed payments will be
considered a breach of contract and the collection process will continue.

In addition, any student requesting to be set up on a monthly auto pay with their credit or
debit cards, will be required to fill out a form to authorize the SFS Office to charge their
card. Students must contact the SFS Office for an authorization form.
