Payment Assistance

Returned Payments

All returned checks, charge cards, and/or debit cards are subject to an insufficient fund fee of $25. This fee, along with the original payment amount, is due within five business days after official notification from the college. These amounts are payable only by cash or money order at the cashier’s office. A hold will be placed on all student records until acceptable payment has been received.

Collection Accounts

We will send you a weekly notification to your Central Piedmont email regarding your balance due until your balance is paid. If you have not paid your balance after 60 days, we will send you a warning that your unpaid balance will be sent to the North or South Carolina Department of Revenue (depending on your state residency) and to a collection agency. We will also place a hold on your student account that will prevent you from registering for classes or receiving a transcript.

If your outstanding balance is sent to collections, you will need to pay your balance due to the collection agency before you will be able to register for classes or order a transcript. To pay your balance due with the collections agency:

  1. Access the collection agency website.
  2. Answer the questions to confirm your identity (e.g., your state of residence, social security number, or account number)

You will then be given payment options or be able to confirm your amount due.
