UofL Statement of Student Financial Responsibility
When registering for the first time for a semester
the following statement will need to be affirmed.
The University of Louisville's official method of correspondence with students is via the UofL assigned email address. I understand that I am responsible for regularly (not less than once per week) accessing my UofL assigned email account and for taking any required action indicated in official university correspondence sent to this address.
Required Consumer Information
Information on financial assistance available to enrolled students is available by accessing the Student Financial Aid Consumer Information webpage. Links and instructions on how to access UofL accreditation information, the annual campus security report, completion and graduation rates, student’s rights under FERPA, voter registration information, UofL’s drug free policy, and athletic program participation rates and financial support are available on the Office of Academic Planning and Accountability website.
Notification of Social Security Number Collection and Usage
The University of Louisville maintains student, parent and customer records. We are required to collect Social Security Numbers (SSNs) to meet our federal and state reporting requirements and so we can identify students and customers properly. We provide SSNs to the federal and state government authorities and to our contracted business partners who are mandated by contract and federal law to protect your confidentiality. Social Security numbers are confidential and exempt from public records requests.
Students and employees are assigned UofL identification numbers to assist in protecting their personal information. For the purpose of tax reporting, financial aid, and collections, the Office of Student Financial Services collects SSNs as mandated by: Sec. 6109, I.R.C; Rule 6C1-3.042.
Electronic Delivery of IRS Form 1098-T
for the Higher Ed Tax Credit
Each year we will provide your annual IRS 1098-T form electronically, available 24/7 through your online access via your UofL ULink account. The 1098-T form for the previous year's Tuition Statement will be available as of January 31st. It is no longer the University's policy to mail Form 1098-T unless requested. If you would like to request a paper copy to be mailed to you at the end of January, you would need to put in this request by writing to the Bursar office or via email by January 10th. By acknowledging that you elect to receive this form electronically, you are helping UofL continue to succeed with our Go Green Initiatives.
STUDENT FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
I understand registration constitutes a contractual financial obligation to pay tuition and fees for which I am liable. I understand my financial obligations are due by the semester due date. Information regarding the semester due date and payment options is available on the Bursar web site.
I am responsible for reading and understanding the current Tuition Reduction Schedule policy of the University as it appears on ULink : Student Services > Tuition-Fees-Payment Options > Tuition and Fees > Tuition Reduction Schedule.
Permission to cancel enrollment does not constitute, nor shall it be construed as, a waiver by UofL of my financial obligation. I understand any financial assistance I receive will be applied against my billed charges to reduce my financial obligation. I am responsible for all outstanding debts and contracts with the University. Federal regulations prohibit federal financial aid from paying non-mandatory university charges unless you, the student, provide your authorization to do so.
Upon withdrawal, I will contact the Bursar’s Office by mail or email to determine what amount remains outstanding on my account.
Students with unpaid account balances will be placed on Financial Hold by the Bursar's Office. Students placed on Financial Hold become ineligible for further registration and transcripts will not be released until the student’s account is paid in full. A late payment fee may be assessed when a student’s account balance is not paid by the last day to drop/add.
Debtors who do not make satisfactory payment arrangements on their past due accounts may have their accounts placed with a collection agency. I further understand that if the University retains a collection agency and/or attorneys to collect amounts owed to the University, I will be responsible to reimburse the University for the fees of any collection agency, which may be based on a percentage of the delinquent account balance (to a maximum of 40 percent of the delinquent account balance), and will also be liable for all reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs and expenses incurred by the University in its collection efforts. The University of Louisville, or associated vendor partners, may also report to the credit bureau organization(s) any information regarding any unpaid obligation.
I understand and agree my financial obligation to the University of Louisville constitutes an educational loan to assist in financing my education and therefore is not dischargeable, pursuant to United States Bankruptcy Code section 523 (a) (8).
In addition, I authorize the University of Louisville and their respective agents or contracted vendors to contact me regarding my loan or student account balance including repayment of my loan or student account balance, at the current or any future number that I provide for my cellular phone or other wireless device using automated telephone dialing equipment or artificial or pre-recorded voice or text messages.
I have read and agree to abide by the terms set forth above in the Statement of Student Financial Responsibility.
