Effective June 1, 2013
The university reserves the right to deduct wages through payroll from employees who have delinquent student accounts (i.e. tuition, room, board, etc.) per the employee’s advance written authorization and in accord with Employment Standards Rule WAC 296-126-028.
There is no maximum limit to the amount of the wage deduction in a pay period; the deduction may be up to the full amount of wages owed. In a case where the university is unable to collect the full amount owed on a student account within three months, delinquent accounts may be turned over to a third-party collection agency, and collection costs, including but not limited to attorney fees, interest, court costs and other fees incurred with collecting this debt, may be added to the account unless satisfactory payment arrangements have been made with the Student Account Office.
