Returned Check Policy
Immediate restitution of funds must be made when a check is returned by a bank for any reason. The Alamo Colleges reserves the right to convert a returned check into an ACH. In addition, the district will charge a $35.00 administrative fee for all returned check items. It is discouraged to use a personal check to pay for a return check.
In the event a returned check is not paid by the end of the semester grading period, the account becomes delinquent and consequently will be released to one of the external collection agencies. Any fees assessed by the agency will be the responsibility of the student.
Stopping payment on a tuition check does not constitute an official withdrawal from the college and will be considered as a NSF item. Official withdrawals must be processed through the Office of Admissions and Records.
