Late Payments

If a student's account becomes overdue, a 20 EUR late fee is automatically added to the balance (EUR 20/fee/installment). The Budget and Finance Office issues a formal reminder. The student will then be granted a period of five working days to pay the overdue amount. After five working days, the student will be sent a second reminder for overdue fees; at this time the student’s access to university services/facilities will be suspended (in accordance with the CEU Policy on Holds below). If the student's account is not settled within five working days of the second reminder, his/her student status will be terminated for non-payment. Please note that communication will be sent to the students University e-mail address which should be checked regularly.

Policy on Holds

Failure to meet any obligation to the university, including those conditions set forth in the individual's enrollment confirmation form and financial obligations, will result in suspension of access to student services. These include—but are not limited to—issuance of transcripts and diplomas, access to any of the following: the CEU computer network; the CEU Library; medical services; the University Information System (rental accommodation database, matriculation form, class registration); research grants and fellowship stipends. The Policy on Holds will be applied until the obligation is met and the hold is cleared by the respective office.
