Past Due Accounts
Accounts not paid in full by the due date at the end of the semester are considered past due. Regular monthly payments are required to avoid placement with a collections agency. Warning letters will be sent, and phone contact will be attempted, but the ultimate responsibility is the student’s. Southwestern has no desire to hurt the student’s credit with placement with collections, so contact Duane Valencia at 817-202-6533 to make arrangements. Please note that payment must be made in full to receive a transcript or a diploma. For a transcript to clear quickly, use a credit card, debit card, money order or cashier’s check for payment, since a wait of two weeks is required to make sure personal checks have cleared the bank. In addition, this past due balance must be paid if the student wishes to enroll again in a subsequent semester.
