An administrative hold will be placed on any student whose account balance remains unpaid at the end of a semester. The hold will prevent registration and the release of transcripts and diploma. Students who default on any Federal Title IV or Institutional loan will be prevented from receiving their academic transcript. The Registrar will not release an academic transcript until the College receives notification in writing from the applicable guarantee agency, the Department of Education, or other holder of the defaulted loan, that the default status has been resolved.
Institutional Loans affected by this policy are as follows:
• Beck Donor
• Ben Hill Griffin
• Helen Harper Brown
The Registrar's office will also hold the academic transcript and/or diploma for the students who withdraw or graduate from Eckerd College with an outstanding balance on their student account. To resolve the debt, students are encouraged to contact the Bursar's office.
