Tuition Procedures

Business Office Holds

  • A business office hold will be placed on a student's account when they have a current term outstanding balance owed to the college prior to registration for the next semester. Holds will remain on a student's account until their bill is paid in full.
  • A balance due hold will also prevent a student from receiving college services such as transcripts and diplomas.

 NSF/Dishonored Checks

  • Checks will be considered NSF/dishonored after they have been presented to the bank twice and are returned to DCTC unpaid due to nonsufficient funds, closed account, stop payment and so forth.
  • Dishonored checks will be backed out of the account in which they were deposited and an NSF fee will be charged.
  • The NSF charge is currently $25 and is subject to change without notice.
  • Uncollected NSF checks are subject to college collection procedures.

 Collection Procedures

  • An account in collection status is an accounts receivable balance owed the college that has been turned over to an outside collection agency.
  • Past due student accounts will be subject to collection procedures that will begin after the final payment plan due date for that semester.
  • Each student will be invoiced and then sent a letter notifying them they have 30 days to respond or else their account will be turned over to the Minnesota Department of Revenue, or MnDOR, for collections.

Meeting the 30-Day Deadline

Students must pay their account in full within the 30-day deadline to avoid being sent to collections.

Failure to Meet the 30-Day Deadline

  • Students who do not respond within the 30-day deadline will have their account submitted to MnDOR for collection.
  • After an account has been turned over to MnDOR, DCTC is no longer involved in the collection process, and the student must deal directly with MnDOR.
