Late Fees and Holds

A registration hold will be placed on a student account if a balance remains from the prior term.  For more information, contact The Office of Student Accounts at student.accounts@valpo.edu or by calling 1.219.464.5101.


Valparaiso University will not impose any penalty, including the assessment of late fees, the denial of access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facilities, or the requirement that a covered individual borrow additional funds, on any covered individual because of the individuals inability to meet his or her financial obligations to the institution due to the delayed disbursement funding from VA under Chapter 31 or 33.

If a student is not 100%, Section 103 states: the restriction on penalties would not apply in cases where the student owes additional payment to the school beyond the amount of the tuition and fee payment from VA to the school. VA would have to make payments to schools no later than 60 days after receiving the tuition and fee certification from the school, and they would have to report semiannually to Congress any cases in which VA fails to make such payments within 60 days of certification.

Students are responsible for reviewing account activity regularly.
