Holds are placed on student accounts for past due balances, balances not covered by financial aid, returned checks, improper paperwork, etc. You can verify any holds on your student account by going to your LU Halo. Accounts are reviewed on a weekly basis to verify that student accounts are financially satisfied. This information is based on current and anticipated tuition and fees along with anticipated financial aid, military and employer tuition assistance.
Students who use a company letter for company reimbursement as a form of payment have 90 days from the first day of class to pay for that course. If the account is not paid in the 90 day time period a hold is placed on the student account until any balance due is brought current. Company letter documents must be uploaded in the Finances section of your LU Halo. If required paperwork is missing a hold will be placed on your student account. If you have a delinquent balance on your account and are not currently enrolled, you are in jeopardy of being sent to collections. Once this happens you cannot enroll into any courses until the amount is paid. You are also charged additional collection fees. Every October delinquent student accounts are submitted to the Municipal Association of South Carolina. Then the information is submitted to the state Department of Revenue office who will garnish any state tax refund to pay Limestone University until the outstanding balance on that student’s account is paid in full. Letters are mailed out to inform students if their account is being sent to MASC and the amount of the past due bill. No further notices are sent after the initial letter is mailed. There is also a $75.00 service fee each time a tax refund is garnished. Throughout the semester, accounts that are not eligible to be submitted to MASC for any reason will be submitted to an outside collection agency. A collection fee will be added to your current debt. This information is also reported to each credit agency.
