Viterbo University policy requires that any past due balance from a previous semester must be paid in full prior to the first day of a subsequent semester. An account with an unpaid past due balance may prohibit the student from participating in classes for any upcoming semester. In addition, all students are required to confirm enrollment and make a minimum down payment of $500 each semester, exclusive of financial aid and any deposits. The down payment, plus payment for any previous semester’s balance, must be received by the Viterbo University Business Office no later than the Friday before each semester begins in order for students to officially confirm their enrollment and participation at Viterbo University. If a student contacts the Business Office to confirm enrollment for a specific semester and it can be verified that his/her financial aid package for that semester has been disbursed to the student account and it pays for all semester charges, then enrollment can be confirmed without paying the $500 deposit (assuming there is no previous semester’s balance). The University will attempt to contact any student that has not made the required payment and we reserve the right to withdraw a student within the first week of any semester if he/she does not respond with payment. Finance charges will be assessed monthly at a nominal annual percentage rate of 15% (1.25% per month) on unpaid balances as of October 31 for fall semester charges, February 28 for spring semester charges and June 30 for summer semester charges (or the final business day of the month should one of the aforementioned dates fall on a weekend) and will continue until the balance is paid in full. Full payment of the account balance is due on the final day of the semester in which the student is currently enrolled. Viterbo University has the right to withhold academic records, including transcripts and diplomas, and may refuse to accept registration for future academic periods during any period in which an unpaid balance exists.
Viterbo University strongly encourages each student to review the tuition refund schedule and the tuition and fee schedule for the current academic year. This information can be obtained from the Business Office or accessed online at www.viterbo.edu/business-office/student-information.
