Debts Owed to the Institution
Should a student or former student fail to pay a debt owed to the institution, the institution may "withhold permission to register; to use facilities for which a fee is authorized to be charged; to receive services, materials, food, or merchandise; or any combination of the above from any person owing a debt" until the debt is paid (see Title 5, California Code of Regulations, Sections 42380 and 42381). For example, the institution may withhold permission to receive official transcripts of grades from any person owing a debt. If a student believes that s/he does not owe all or part of an unpaid obligation, the student should contact the campus Cashier's Office. The Cashier's Office, or another office on campus to which the student may be referred by the Cashier's Office, will review the pertinent information, including information the student may wish to present, and will advise the student of its conclusions with respect to the debt.
