Financial Hardship Resources through Student Financial Services
Repayment Agreements for Past Due Balances
Students can work with the University Collections department in Student Financial Services to setup a repayment agreement for past due balances in order to avoid the debt being sent to a collection agency. Please email University Collections or call 562.985.8280. Enrolling in a repayment agreement, in most cases, will not lift current financial holds on your student account until all debts are paid-in-full.
Special Circumstance Refund Request
If a student is forced to withdraw due to unforeseen or extenuating circumstances, a Request for Special Circumstances Refund (DocuSign) may be submitted to Student Financial Services at Brotman Hall room 155 along with a personal statement describing the situation which forced the student to withdraw. Please include necessary supporting documentation such as medical documents, a professor/counselor letter explaining your circumstances, or other pertinent supporting documents. Students who receive aid and now owe a balance from a financial aid disbursement, as a result of their withdrawal, are not eligible for the Special Circumstances Refund Request.
