Policy 6.8: Returned Check Service Fee

Original Date of Issue: 6/15/94

DCCC may accept personal or business checks in payment of tuition, books, supplies, and other charges that are usual and necessary in the course of providing educational services to the community. In the event that a check deposited by the College is returned unpaid to the College for any reason, the College will assess a Returned Check Service Fee on the account of the student, whose charges were paid. The amount of the Returned Check Service Fee will be listed on the applicable Student Tuition and Fee Structure as so stated in the College catalog.

A check returned unpaid may be redeposited as appropriate. A student will be charged a fee on any second redeposited/returned check. In the case of a check which cannot be redeposited or after a check is returned unpaid a second time, the student may be disenrolled and/or referred to a collection agency for payment.

A student whose account reflects two returned checks will be required to pay by wire transfer, certified check, bank check, or a similar transaction for which payment is guaranteed.
