Accounts may be sent to a collection agency as early as 90 calendar days after the initial due date of a bill. Pre-collection referral letters are always sent out at least 30 calendar prior to referral to an agency and are mailed to the home address on file on the student WINGS account. This notice will outline any implications of the debt referral. We advise that you pay as much as possible prior to the referral to avoid or minimize any collection fees allowable by the terms and conditions signed by you and fees allowable by Wisconsin state statutes.
