Obligation for Payment

Enrollment constitutes a financial contract between the student and the San Francisco Art Institute. The student’s rights to services and benefits are contingent upon them making all payments as agreed upon. If payments of amounts owed to SFAI are not made when they become due, SFAI has the right to cancel the student’s registration and/or administratively withdraw them from the current term, withhold their grades, transcripts, diplomas, scholastic certificates, and degrees, and impound their final exams. Failure to maintain good financial standing with SFAI will result in denied participation in any deferred payment plans and/or some forms of financial aid. In addition, balances due to SFAI are reported by our collection agencies, which may impact the student’s credit ratings.

Holds on Student Accounts

Prior to registering for a new term, the student must pay any outstanding balances from any preceding terms. If the student does not pay their outstanding balances or make payment arrangements satisfactory to SFAI, they will not be permitted to register. This policy applies to any outstanding balances with SFAI.
