Blyth Full-Time Collections Process & Policies

1st Follow-Up:  A gentle reminder that the invoice is overdue. A clear revised due date will be presented (72 business hours) and a reminder that if payment is not received within 72 business hours, that a $50 late payment fee will be levied.
2nd Follow-Up: The second follow-up will take place on or before the start of classes. This reminder will notify the family that the $50 late payment fee has now been applied and that the new balance is due within 48 business hours.  It will also state that failure to make payment may result in academic consequences if payment is not received promptly.
3rd Follow-Up: The third and final follow-up will take place no later than mid-way through the Term. This reminder will notify the family that this is their last opportunity to pay their balance before being asked to refrain from attending until payment is resolved. In extreme cases, this may also necessitate further consequences (ex. expulsion) but only in the rarest of circumstances.

* Please note that follow-ups will be conducted via phone call or email. In the event Blyth is unable to reach a family by phone, an accompanying email will be sent to create an objective time stamp for both parties.

Special Case: Missed Installment Payments

Missed installment payments will continue to be monitored and managed by the Registration team. The $50 fee will be levied and families will be given 72 business hours to resolve a missed installment payment.

If payment is not resolved, the student will be considered in default and the Campus notified to restrict attendance until payment is made.

Special Case: Term-by-Term Students

For those students exercising our term-by-term course options, families will be contacted via email 6-weeks prior to the start of any given term to notify them of Blyth’s intent to charge tuition for 2 courses at the 30-day mark.

Families will be given a 2-week window of opportunity to opt-out by notifying us in writing that they will not be returning OR confirming a scheduled appointment date with their Campus for resolution prior to the 30-day mark.
