XIV: BSC Payment Extensions
A. The purpose of Payment Extensions on payment due dates shall be to provide alternate payment dates to members for the payment of BSC bills, when, because of unexpected circumstances, they are temporarily short of funds and are unable to obtain funds elsewhere.
B. Members regularly receiving government income assistance or support through entitlement acts may request and be granted a payment due-date schedule with monthly payments rather than tri-semesterly.
C. The maximum individual payment extension shall not exceed the semester’s rent, and the due date shall not exceed the last day of the semester without AdCom’s approval. All applicants and recipients are subject to the usual rules regarding payment of bills and delinquency charges.
D. Each applicant shall fill out a payment extension application form. All payment extension applications must be received on or before the due date in question.
E. The applicant shall be asked to provide the following information, which shall be kept confidential among BSC staff, AdCom, and any agencies involved in collection of delinquent accounts:
- 1. Amount requested and proposed payment date.
- 2. Reason for request.
- 3. Anticipated source of funds for repayment.
F. Staff shall administer payment extensions. Payment Extensions shall be granted on the basis of need and financial responsibility. AdCom or staff shall have the power to deny any request for payment extension for reasonable cause. Members may appeal any payment arrangement decision of staff to AdCom
