Student Financial Responsibility Policy

What is the Student Financial Responsibility Policy?

The Student Financial Responsibility Policy is our way of ensuring that you understand the financial repercussions of enrolling in classes at Florida State University. The policy outlines the University’s expectations for payment, holds, the employment of collection agencies, contact methods and procedures as well as tax document delivery methods.

Why do I have to sign the Student Financial Responsibility Policy?There are several reasons that we expect every student to acknowledge the messaging contained within the Student Financial Responsibility Policy. First, and most importantly, we expect students to thoughtfully consider the cost of their education, to assist in financial planning and debt management. Second, the agreement satisfies several federal notification requirements that govern how student accounts are handled. Third, the University may employ the services of outside servicers and agencies for the collection of fees, and the Responsibility Policy serves to make you aware of those arrangements.

How often do I need to sign the Student Financial Responsibility Policy?

To ensure that you are considering your finances each term, the Financial Responsibility policy will be signed once during registration for the Summer/Fall, and once for registration during the Spring each year of enrollment.

What happens if I refuse to sign?The agreement serves to notify you of potential consequences of non-payment, and to provide you with vital account information. If you choose not to sign any or all of the agreement, you will not be permitted to register for classes until the issue is resolved.

How quickly can I register after completing the agreement?

Completion of the agreement will lift your hold immediately and you will be able to continue enrolling.
