Special Note-Accounts/Receivable Holds
Accounts/Receivable holds are prior obligations to the University (library fines, old UC/UTC loans, parking fines, returned checks, accounts receivable, etc.) that must be paid prior to registering for courses. Students will not be allowed to register with a hold. Also, obligations which are incurred after registration must be paid with current term charges by the cancellation deadline.
Any student who submits registration materials will be obligated for a percentage of the fees even if he/she does not attend classes unless the Registration Office is notified in writing prior to the first official day of classes that he/she wishes to cancel registration.
The University reserves the right to refuse to release to any student their transcript or degree for failure to return UTC property or pay any accounts due at the University.
Mocs Express Fee Payment
Mocs Express combines all fees, charges, fines, and credits into one statement. The University will mail a Mocs Express statement to all students who register during the Priority Registration period. Students who owe a balance may write a check or authorize a MasterCard or Visa account to confirm attendance by the deadline date. Students who do not owe a balance or have a credit may simply confirm attendance by returning the bottom portion of the Mocs Express statement by the deadline.
The University accepts cash, checks, MasterCard, and Visa for payment of fees. Fees may be paid on line with MasterCard or Visa by accessing the UTC web site at www.utc.edu, click on Current Students, then click Pay Fees and select Pay Fees on Line.
Avoiding Registration Problems
Act early! If you are late, you will have to wait.
As the deadline gets closer, lengthy lines may form at the Bursars Office. The Bursars Office, Financial Aid, Housing, and the Registration Office are often busy with telephone calls. If there is a problem with your Mocs Express Statement, notify the Bursars Office at (423) 425-4781 immediately.
Every student who has registered during Priority Registration is responsible for the deadline.
Failure to pay fees or set confirmation of attendance with the Bursars Office by the published deadline will result in automatic cancellation from all classes. This applies to all students regardless of sources of funds and includes those whose fees are billed, deferred, waived, or paid with personal funds, including financial aid and graduate assistantships. All students whose registrations are cancelled will be required to reregister and pay appropriate fees, including late fees.
There is only one cancellation date each semester. Students who register after the cancellation will be held responsible for all fees and will risk receiving failing grades for all classes not dropped prior to the first day of classes in the semester.
The deadlines for the 2005-2006 academic year are:
For fall 2005, the deadline is 5 p.m. on August 11, 2005;
For spring 2006, the deadline is 5 p.m. on December 16, 2005.
