Students that attend the University of Toledo and Bowling Green State University that havenâ??t paid all of their bills will get a big surprise when classes start this fall. UT and BGSU are both enforcing a policy that will disenroll students that are not in good financial standing or have not made arraignments to pay back money owed to the Universities. Students who are not in good financial standing cannot take classes and will lose dormitory rooms until they have repaid the money owed or made a payment plan.
Both the University of Toledo and Bowling Green State University have done a messaging blitz so that students knew deadlines and what the consequences for unpaid bills were. They sent out emails, social media messages and more.
Both schools say they will look at each student case by case and can waive the policy if needed. The Universities hope there will be reduction in uncollectible debt and that will allow students to focus on their class work and not their finances. It could also create more room for students in high demand classes. In the following video clip we talked with Jill Carr Dean of Student Affairs and BGSU students about the policy.
