Student Financial Responsibility

By registering for classes at NWACC, you agree to assume financial responsibility for all charges billed to your student account including, but not limited to tuition, course fees, late fees, books, parking and library fines, and returned checks.

You understand NWACC is advancing value to you in the form of educational services and that your right to register is expressly conditioned upon your agreement to pay these student obligations.

You acknowledge that you have read, understand and agree to the following provisions:

If your federal or institutional financial aid is either not received by NWACC or you later lose eligibility to retain financial aid for the semester, you assume responsibility for paying all student obligations for this term.

If your third-party sponsor (military, employer, governmental agency, etc.) fails to pay NWACC, you assume responsibility for paying the amount the sponsor originally promised to pay on your behalf.

A “HOLD” will be placed on your records if your student obligations remain unpaid, which will prevent your ability to register for future semesters, add classes for the current term, receive grades and test scores, and receive official/unofficial transcripts.

NWACC or its designated collection agency may use an automated calling system and pre-recorded voice or text messages to contact you by phone regarding any outstanding account to any current or future phone number you have provided to the college, including any number to a cellular phone or wireless device.

Delinquent debts may be reported to a credit bureau and referred to collection agencies and pursued through legal action against you. You agree to pay all reasonable costs and expenses of collecting unpaid charges, including collection agency fees (which may be based on a percentage up to a maximum of 35% of the debt), attorney fees and court costs. This Agreement shall be construed in accordance with Arkansas law and you consent to the jurisdiction of the District Court of Benton County, Arkansas, or the Federal District Court of Western Arkansas regardless of your domicile at the time of such suit.
