  • Prepaid Programs
    • SCTPP account owner will need to submit a copy of their South Carolina Tuition Prepayment Program (SCTPP) card to Student Accounts (SFS). Once SFS has verified the SCTPP account, a credit will be extended in the "anticipated payment amount" on behalf of your plan administrator. The credit will be itemized on the student bill and include the terminology "SC Prepaid Billing."  Please note: SCTPP will not cover fees that are not assessed to ALL Lander students (i.e., lab fees, library fee, course/major fee and/or optional fees).
    • Other state prepaid plans (not including 529 College Savings Plans)  account owner must contact their plan administrator to begin the process. Once the account owner has completed all required documentation with their plan administrator, the prepaid program will send Lander a third-party billing authorization letter. Based upon how your prepaid program calculates your tuition payment (i.e., per credit hour, restricted, unrestricted), a credit will be extended in the "anticipated payment amount" on behalf of your plan administrator. The credit will be itemized on the student bill. 

A check, eCheck, EFT or credit card used as payment for University expenses that is returned unpaid by the bank creates an indebtedness to the University. Student Accounts administers matters relating to the collection of all returned items for student payments. Student Accounts will represent returned items for payment of academic fees. A $25 fee will be charged for each returned item. If a payment is returned or dishonored for any reason, the student's account may be debited electronically for the amount of the check plus the $25 returned item fee.

If the item is returned to the University in a timely manner with no response from the student or drawer, a written request to disenroll the student will be made to the Registrar. If the request is approved, the percentage of refund will be applied to the debt. If the item is returned after the mid-point of the semester with no response, a decision will be made by the Director of Student Accounts and the Registrar as to the effect of disenrollment. The University may restrict subsequent academic and other fee payments by accepting only certified checks and money orders.

Any individual who uses a two-party check for payment of University expenses will be held responsible for that check if it is returned unpaid by the bank. Items used as payment for various University services (such as meal plans, housing, etc.) that are later returned unpaid by the bank give the University the right to cancel such services and cause forfeiture of any refund.

Any returned items not collected by the above procedures may be turned over to a collection agency. The indebtedness reported to a credit bureau and collection fees will be added to the account. Transcripts and diplomas will be withheld pending payment, and the debt may be deducted from state income tax refunds.

Abuse of check payment privileges may result in the restriction of such privileges for an indefinite period of time-based on the frequency and/or dollar amount, as determined by Student Accounts.

Returned Fees:

  • Returned Checks: A $25 returned check fee will be charged for all returned checks. Returned checks and subsequent fees must be satisfied with a certified check or money order.
  • Returned eChecks: A $25 returned eCheck fee will be charged for all returned eChecks due to non-sufficient funds, stop payment, frozen accounts, and revoked authorizations. eChecks returned for invalid routing and/or account number will create a returned check receivable on the student account and tuition will be considered unpaid.
    The ability to pay via eCheck may be restricted for any student with three or more returned payments or at the discretion of Student Accounts.
  • Credit Card Charge Backs: Any credit card payment disputed, reversed, and returned to the University will be placed on the student's account as a receivable and collected via the above policy and procedures. Returned credit card payments are subject to a $25 returned item fee.
