  • Notice is given that National Louis University may, at its option, report and access credit bureaus and other appropriate non-campus organizations.
  • If I fail to comply with the terms and conditions of this agreement, National Louis University may 1) refer my account to a collection agent for further collection efforts, 2) initiate legal proceedings, 3) withhold institutional services such as transcripts, diplomas or future registrations, and 4) assess all costs of collections.
