If a student fails to pay their student account bill or any monies due and owing to Northwest Nazarene University by the scheduled due date, and fails to make acceptable payment arrangements as defined by NNU to bring their account current, NNU may refer the delinquent account to a collection agency. If NNU refers the student account balance to a third party for collection, a collection fee will be assessed and will be due in full at the time of the referral to the third party. The collection fee will be calculated at the maximum amount permitted by applicable law, but not to exceed 40% of the amount outstanding. For purposes of this provision, the third party may be a debt collection company or an attorney. If a lawsuit is filed to recover an outstanding balance, the student shall also be responsible for any cost associated with the lawsuit, such as court costs or other applicable costs. The delinquent account may be reported to one or more of the national credit bureaus.
