If a check made payable to the college is returned by the student's bank for any reason, the student's records will be placed on "HOLD" and the student will be charged a returned check fee of $25 for each returned check.
The NWACC Cashiers Office will notify the student by phone and by letter if a check is returned on a student account. The student's records will remain on "HOLD" until the student pays the amount of the returned-check plus the $25 returned check fee with either: cash, cashier's check, money order, American Express, Discover, MasterCard, or Visa. If payment is not made to the college within 10 business days, the matter may be referred to the Benton County Prosecutor's Office. If you have more than one check returned, the college will refuse to accept checks from you.
