University officials say students who have a balance of $375 or more on January 19th, the first day of the spring semester, will be disenrolled.
The university has had the disenrollment policy for several years. But the campus’ Interim Associate Vice-President for Enrollment Management Lisa Bernardo says it hasn't been enforced because they haven’t had the capability to do it…until now.
“We do have new technology and it identifies the students who have not paid, who are not in one of our, what we’re calling protected populations so those who are on financial aid, are veterans who are receiving benefits.”
Bernardo says about 800 to 1,000 students don't pay their fees on time each semester.
Students can re-enroll after they pay, but Bernardo says they probably won't be able to get into the same classes because budget cuts have led to fewer course sections.
