Terms and Conditions of Registration
Student Financial Responsibility
Registration constitutes a financial agreement between you and the University. Tuition, fees and other charges you incur, including but not limited to housing, meal plans, and bookstore charges (“Charges”), shall be added to your student account. Any Charges that are not covered by financial aid shall be the responsibility of the student and shall be paid within the term in which the Charges incurred.
Students assume responsibility for all costs incurred as a result of enrollment at Barry University. It is the student’s responsibility to be aware of their account balance and financial aid information and maintain current valid postal address information at all times to ensure receipt of all University correspondence in a timely manner. Barry University recognizes the university e-mail system as the primary electronic communication between the student and the University. Students are expected to check their email on a frequent and consistent basis in order to stay current with University-related communications.
The University reserves the right to recover all costs related to the collection of delinquent accounts, including attorney’s fees. The University reserves the right to cancel registration of any student if a balance due from a previous term remains unpaid at the start of a subsequent term.
Conditions for Non-Reversible Fee
