FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY STATEMENT
Before registering for classes at Southeastern Louisiana University, all students
will be required to acknowledge the University's Financial Responsibility Statement.
This statement confirms that by registering for classes at Southeastern, you become
a party to a contract with Southeastern Louisiana University and you express your
agreement to the terms and conditions set forth by this catalog.
The Financial Responsibility Statement reads as follows:
By registering for courses at Southeastern Louisiana University ("Southeastern"),
you hereby acknowledge that you are entering into a contractual arrangement with Southeastern,
whereby you agree to comply with all laws, rules and regulations applicable to your
registration, payment of fees, enrollment and attendance. Included in the rules and
regulations that comprise the terms and conditions of this contract are those contained
in any Southeastern General Catalog in effect during the years of your enrollment.
In addition to reading, agreeing with and accepting all of the terms and conditions
set forth in the Southeastern General Catalog, you must specifically acknowledge the
- All fees and other University expenses are due before classes begin.
- It is the student's responsibility to cancel their registration by dropping all courses
before classes begin if proper financial arrangements have not been made.
- The university reserves the right to withhold future services (registration, transcript
request, diploma, etc.) to persons who have any outstanding obligations with the University.
- In the event that financial aid is reduced or cancelled, or in the event the student
has not met the specified requirements for receiving such aid, the student will become
responsible for the full balance of outstanding charges.
- If payment is in the form of a check and the check is returned by the bank for any
reason, a $15 service charge will be assessed to the student's account. If the check
is not redeemed promptly, the returned check may be submitted to the District Attorney's
office for collection. Upon transmittal for collection, the student will be responsible
for a $10 fee in addition to any other collection costs imposed by the District Attorney's
office based on a percentage of the amount of the check.
- Students leaving Southeastern prior to the 60% point, officially or unofficially,
in the semester are obligated to return the federal aid received for that semester
proportionate to the student's attendance. Failure to return that portion of federal
aid received upon demand may result in the amount owed being transferred to the State
of Louisiana Attorney General's Office or other outside collection agency, for collection.
Upon transmittal for collection, the student is responsible for collection/attorney's
fees in the amount of thirty-three and one-third per cent (33 1/3%) of the unpaid
debt, and all court costs.
- Any debt owed to the university as a result of the student's failure to make required
payments or failure to comply with the terms of the applicable program as governed
by the Southeastern General Catalog will result in a violation of the terms and conditions
of this contract. Failure to respond to demands for payment made by Southeastern may
result in such debts being transferred to the State of Louisiana Attorney General's
Office or other outside collection agency, for collection. Upon transmittal for collection,
the student is responsible for collection/attorney's fees in the amount of thirty-three
and one-third per cent (33 1/3%) of the unpaid debt, and all court costs.
A student must accept this agreement by logging on to their LEONet account. If a student
has not accepted this statement before registering classes through their LEONet account,
