1. What is the Financial Agreement?
The Student Financial Responsibility Agreement (herein referred to simply as agreement) informs students of the financial responsibilities associated with enrolling for classes at Howard University and explains the potential consequences if a student fails to meet those obligations. It is part of the “Check-in” process.
2. Why do I have to acknowledge and sign the Agreement?
Our goal is to help our students understand the cost of their education and the financial policies associated with their enrollment at Howard University. This agreement, in conjunction with our website, letters and other documentation, helps define the University’s expectations for payment, and allows us to clearly inform students of our policies related to billing, late payment penalties, contact methods, etc.
3. How often do I need to sign and complete the agreement?
Students will be asked to complete the Agreement each semester throughout their academic career at Howard University. (i.e. Undergraduate, Graduate, Professional, etc.)
4. Howard quickly can I register after completing the Agreement?
Assumingly all other requirements have been satisfied and no HOLDS are on your account, then the completion of the agreement (Check-in process) will lift the related hold immediately and you will be able to proceed with enrollment.
5. What happens if I refuse to sign?
The agreement serves as notification of potential consequences of non-payment, and to provide vital account information. If a student chooses not to complete the Agreement, they will not be permitted to register for classes until the issue is resolved.
