Chancellor’s Office Treasury Offset Program (COTOP)

Delinquent Debt Collection Charge
Each student is responsible for paying all fees by the start of classes for a term or session. When classes remain on the student schedule and fees are not paid, the fees owed are past due and subject to the collections process. If a student’s account is sent to a collection agency, a 30% penalty is added to the balance owed to the College. Accounts placed for collection shall be listed on credit bureaus at the discretion of the collection agency.

If a delinquent debt is sent to the State Chancellor’s Office Tax Offset Program (COTOP), a 33% penalty charge will be added to the balance owed.
