Check writing privileges will be revoked for those students writing three or more returned checks to the University.
Room rents vary per semester according to the accommodations available. A $25 nonrefundable housing application fee is required from students applying for housing. In addition, a $225 advance payment is required for fall semester. Fees not paid on regular fee payment dates will incur a late fee.

If You Owe the University Money
Holds are financial obligations to the University (library fines, old UC/UTC loans, parking fines, returned checks, accounts receivable, etc.) that the student must pay prior to registering for courses. Students may not register if there is a monetary hold in the account. In addition, students who incur financial obligations after registration must pay the charges by the cancellation deadline.
Unless the student officially drops a course or withdraws from the University, he or she must pay a percentage of the fees and tuition as listed on the MocsNet statement prior to the first official day of classes. Failure to attend classes is not evidence of the student's intention to drop the course or withdraw from the University.
According to Tennessee law, the University cannot release student transcripts if the student has a financial obligation to the University.
