Collections and Third-Party Billing

The Collections area is responsible for the collection and management of all outstanding debts due to the university by encouraging timely payment and minimizing debt.

We have established policies and procedures in the management, collection and reporting of accounts receivable in accordance with FIU policies established by the Florida International University Controller’s Office along with the Board of Trustees regulations on how to handle delinquent accounts.

All account balances not paid in full when due are the sole responsibility of the student. The student is responsible for all costs incurred by the University to collect such debt. This may include, but is not limited to, late fees, collection costs, litigation / attorney’s fees, court costs and interest which are stipulated in the Terms and Conditions that the student electronically signs off when registering for classes.

Collection Information

Collection Efforts:

Students are sent e-mail notifications via their FIU e-mail account notifying them of their balance. If they do not pay the outstanding account balance it may result in their account being turned over to a collection agency and the potential Collection Cost.

Holds for Non-Payment:

If a student’s account becomes past due a hold will be placed on the student’s records to prevent the issuance of a transcript and/or diploma and registration.

Collection Placement:

Once the student’s balance is placed in collections, the University is no longer able to offer a payment arrangement for the past due balance.

Chapter 31: Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment

If you are a disabled veteran, you may be entitled to Vocational Rehabilitation education benefits from the VA which may cover up to the full cost of tuition, books, and fees. You may also receive a stipend for course enrollments and technology expenses associated with taking courses online.

Tuition Assistance Program

Military Tuition Assistance is a benefit paid to eligible members of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard. Congress has given each service the ability to pay up to 100% for the tuition expenses of its members.

Each service has its own criteria for eligibility, obligated service, application processes, and restrictions. This money is usually paid directly to the institution by the individual services.
