Typically, a $40 flat fee is charged for missing a due date with additional 1.5% interest assessments each month afterwards. Those may continue until the account is placed for collections. When an account is turned to a collection agent, a servicing fee of up to 1/3 of the original charge may be added to the receivable. Additionally, in January of each year, all receivables are reported to the Oklahoma State Tax Commission. State tax returns may be captured and applied to outstanding balances. Finally, future enrollments and current records may be on hold pending payment of the balance.

An additional penalty charge of $25.00 will be applied for applications received after the application deadlines.

Students who register during priority and early registration must pay tuition by the 5 p.m.due dates to avoid interest charges and penalties.
