A $35.00 service charge will be assessed against the student's account for a returned check or dishonored credit card or debit card payment for accounts not in past due collection status. A period of ten (10) days will be allowed to satisfy the financial obligation prior to initiating the collection process.

In addition, a “Prevent Check Presentation” service indicator will be placed on the student account for a minimum of two years. If the returned check fee and total obligation is not paid in full by the required time the college will seek payment though the State of Virginia Department of Treasury and Collection agencies.
