Late Payment

Due to the possibility of disconnection for non-payment, payments made after the due date must be made at our office. Do not mail late payments. Interest and penalty fees will be charged in accordance with guidelines established by the Department of Accounts.

In the event of default on or the return of a check for payment of service, the debtor will be subject to pay a penalty fee, to pay interest at the highest rate allowed by law, and to pay for all reasonable administrative costs, collections costs, and attorney’s fees incurred in the collection of funds due the University.

Non-receipt of statement is not a valid defense for non-payment; it is the responsibility of the individual who has incurred the debt to see that the debt is discharged. In the event the debtor is an employee of Virginia Tech, the debtor agrees to have any delinquent amounts taken through payroll deduction as soon as the account is greater than or equal to 90 days delinquent. The customer agrees to assume all liability for payment of charges until such time that the customer notifies the Virginia Tech Electric Service Office that such service is to be discontinued.

To request a refund for payment(s) or overpayments made to your electric service account, please contact the VTES business office by phone at (540) 231-6437. Written request for refund may be required.
