Student Accounts is responsible for recovering monies owed to the University by students who are no longer enrolled. This responsibility includes:


Non-Payment Actions

Non-payment will result in the following University actions:

  • Assessment of billing and collection charges
  • Placement of hold on all University services, including diplomas and access to register for subsequent semesters
  • Placement of the account with a collection agency


If you have a hold from Student Accounts, your payment may be mailed to:

Lander University
Student Accounts
CPO Box 6003
Greenwood, SC 29649

Please include the name and Lander ID#. 

For more information, see the Student Handbook.

If you cannot pay your debt in full, our department can work out payment arrangements to avoid the placement of the debt with a collection agency. However, students must pay their balance with Student Accounts in full for registration or diploma hold release.


Placement with a Third-Party Collection Agency

Delinquent accounts may be placed with one of our third-party collection agencies listed below. If your account has been placed with a collection agency, you will receive notification from the collection agency. All future contact regarding your account should be made directly to that collection agency.

Set Off Debt Collection Act

The Setoff Debt Collection Act is designed to facilitate the collection of debts owed by an individual to an agency of the State. Debtors to the University, which is a State Agency, with debts of $50.00 or greater and in arrears of ninety days or more will be reported to the SC Department of Revenue for potential set off against their SC individual in-come tax refunds.

The Department of Revenue will place a hold on State income tax returns due to debtors whose names have been submitted. The Department of Revenue will notify the taxpayer that the University has a claim against the income tax refund. The Department of Revenue will forward the amount of the refund claimed to the University, less a $25 collection fee.

The debtor must contact the University's Student Loan Collections for additional information regarding their account. Student records will remain tagged until the financial obligation is satisfied.

The act gives the alleged debtor the right to file a written protest for the validity of the debt. The written protest must be submitted within 30 days from the date of notification of the University's claim and contain the information below:

  • Your name
  • Your address
  • Your Social Security number
  • Type of debt in dispute
  • A detailed statement of all reasons you disagree with the debt amount or dispute that you owe the debt

The originally written protest must be mailed to Lander University. For complete information, please contact Student Financial Services.

The debtor waives their right to protest if they fail to file a written request within 30 days.
