As indicated above, all new graduate students are required to pay an advance deposit of $150; and all new undergraduate students are required to pay an advance deposit of $75. This payment will hold a place for you and will be applied to your tuition costs. Upon receipt of the required advance deposit and the opening of the registration period, your registration will be processed, as long as formal admittance to the major has been granted. The deposit will be applied to the cost of tuition. If you decide to not attend Eastern University, you must notify the Office of the Registrar in writing before the end of the first seven calendar days from the start of the academic session and the deposit will be refunded.
Full payment of my financial account is expected by the first day of the session. Failure to fulfill my payment obligation may result in late payment fees, monthly service charges, suspension from classes, withholding of registration from future sessions, and the release of transcripts, grades, or my diploma. Eastern University will apply approved state grants, Eastern University grants and scholarships toward the payment of my tuition, fees, books, room, insurance, and/or any other charges billed by Eastern University. (Please note: A 1.5% monthly service charge will be added to all accounts that become delinquent.)
In cases of serious delinquency of financial obligation, I understand that my student account may be placed with a collection agency and ultimately may be listed with one or more credit bureaus. In addition to the delinquent balance, I will be responsible for any and all monthly service charges accrued on the account and any costs, which may range from 25% to 50%, associated with my account being with a collection agency. I understand that once a debt has been sent to a collection agency that future communications concerning repayment are to be directed to the collection agency and not Eastern University. If it becomes necessary to litigate my account, all costs of litigation will be added to the balance of my account.
I will receive financial aid information to help me determine if I can afford the cost of Eastern University tuition, fees, books and other educational expenses. I understand that estimates are not final and I must file the FAFSA in order to receive an award letter. (Costs are subject to change annually.)
If I decide to cancel or change my registration, I will notify the Office of the Registrar in writing before the end of the first seven calendar days from the start of the academic session; the tuition and fees that I paid will be refunded to me. Books, along with the receipts, must be returned to the bookstore within 72 hours from the start of the class in order for me to qualify for a refund.
All university policies are published in the course catalog which is available online at www.eastern.edu/registrar.
