Payment Agreement

Prairie View A&M University Payment Agreement and Consent to Use HigherOne Services for Refunds and Consent for Withdrawal Insurance

The following agreement must be accepted by each student registering here at Prairie View A&M University. You will be prompted with this statement when you log into PantherTracks:

Payment Agreement

I agree to pay all tuition, fees, and charges associated with my attendance to Prairie View A&M University. I understand I am responsible for maintaining my correct address and telephone contact information in Panthertracks through PVPlace. I am responsible for reading all email sent to my pvamu.edu address.

I agree that if I have not paid 100% of my current tuition, fees, and charges by the last business day before the first class day, that PVAMU has my permission to automatically enroll me in the installment method for payment of my current tuition, fees and charges for Fall & Spring terms only. I understand there will be a fee assessed for enrolling in the installment method and I agree to the assessment. I understand that if I fail to make the installment payments on the date due, I will be assessed a late charge for each time I fail to meet the due date. I understand the terms for the installment method for payment of my current tuition, fees and charges as listed on the Treasury Services web site Fee Payment Plan http://www.pvamu.edu/pages/3526.asp. If I should be able to pay all current tuition, fees, and charges in full prior to the first day of class, the installment payment plan fee will be reversed.

I understand that if I have not paid 34% of my tuition and fees on or prior to the 12th class day (census day) for Fall/Spring and 100% on or prior to the 4th class day (census day) of school for Summer that I will be dropped for non-payment. If I enrolled late or add additional courses after school begins, I understand if I am not in a paid status as stated above by the 20th class day for Fall/Spring and the 15th class day for Summer (per PVAMU Academic Calendar) for the current term that I will be dropped for non-payment

I give my permission to allow any refund due from financial aid/loans/awards/ and/or scholarships to be applied to any previous balance owed and short term loan balance due. If the amount of the refund is greater than the amount owed, the University will issue me a refund.

I understand if I should receive a refund and then I incur additional charges and fees I am responsible for paying the balance due. If my financial aid and/or awards/scholarship have to be returned, I understand I will be held responsible for returning the amount of the refund I received back to the university.

I understand that if I fail to make full payment of tuition, fees, and charges by the due date, I will be prohibited from registering for classes until full payment is made. If I fail to make full payment prior to the end of the semester I understand that I may be denied credit for the work done that semester and the ability to participate in the commencement ceremony. I understand that if my past due balances are turned over to a collection agency that I will be responsible for the payment of fees of any collection agency assessed to the University, which may be based on a percentage at a maximum of 33.3% of the debt, and all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney fees, we incur in the such collection efforts of my past due balance.

I understand that if I withdraw from PVAMU any time after the 1st class day Fall/Spring semesters I am responsible for all/part tuition, fees, and charges assessed depending on my withdrawal date.

HigherOne Services for Student Refunds

Prairie View A&M University partnered with HigherOne, a financial services company focused solely on higher education to bring a new official Prairie View A&M University ID and a faster way to receive your refund, the PVAMU Plus Card.

With HigherOne, the student has three options in which to receive their refund:  The HigherOne “One Account”, direct deposit to your existing bank account, or a paper check.  Prairie View A&M University now issues student refunds through HigherOne in which these options are available to you the student.

In order to make these refund services available to you, HigherOne will need to mail a card to you on behalf of Prairie View A&M University that will assist you with making your refund preference.

If you would like to receive your student refund through HigherOne, which offers the three (3) options listed above, click the box at the bottom of this page to consent to receiving your refund through HigherOne.

If you do not consent to receiving your refund through these methods provided through HigherOne, your other option to receive your refund is through PVAMU by method of paper check.  This process could take up to 14 days for you to receive your refund.

If you do not consent to the services provided by HigherOne, your student refund will be automatically mailed to the mailing address on file in PV Place.

Federal Funds Authorization

I authorize Prairie View A&M University to apply my federal student aid to any non-institutional charges (any charge not directly related to taking a course such as parking fines, moving violations, library fines, returned check fees, application fees, medical fees, installment fees, other fines, etc.) and past due balances. If I live in on campus housing, I authorize Prairie View A&M University to apply my federal student aid to pay for on campus housing that is provided by a 3rd party vendor. This authorization will remain in effect unless I request in writing to PVAMU Treasury Services to cancel this authorization.

I understand if I do have any outstanding fees, fines, etc. I will not be allowed to register for any future semesters, will not be able to receive an official transcript, will not be able to walk at graduation, and unpaid balances may be turned over to a collection agency, and I may be denied credit for the courses I have taken.

By submitting, I certify that I have read, understand, and agree to the terms and condition of the Payment Agreement, Federal Funds Authorization and Use of HigherOne Services.  Please check one of the boxes below in each section and click submit.

Tuition Refund Insurance for Withdrawals

We understand that the non-refunded portion of tuition can be a financial hardship to many families.  Therefore, we are pleased to make Tuition & Fee Withdrawal Refund Insurance available to help protect your education investment.  Tuition & Fee Withdrawal Refund Insurance is an optional program that refunds your tuition, fees, and room/board charges, up to the policy limits, if you are unable to complete the semester due to a medical reason such as illness, accident, mental health issue, or death.  This program complements and enhances our school’s refund policy and we believe families will benefit from this added protection.  For more information please go to http://www.pvamu.edu/fsrv/treasury-services/refunds/student-withdrawal-refund-policy/   or   www.tuitioninsuranceplan.com/pvamu.
