  • I understand I am responsible for any balance due on my student account which must be paid before I can access my transcripts or register for additional classes.  I understand that this balance plus any subsequent charges may be turned over to a commercial collection agency if I fail to pay my debt. If collection is required I agree to pay all additional collection fees, including but not limited to collection agency fees of up to 33.333% and attorney fees.  If the account is referred to a commercial collection agency, Montana State University may disclose the facts concerning the default along with other pertinent information to credit bureau organizations.
