Every semester, Utah State University’s Logan campus has a ritual in which they remove students, who have not paid their tuition and fees completely, from their classes. This ritual is known as The Purge.
The initial purge is done two weeks before the start of school. This initial purge does not include students from the Price or Blanding campuses with the exception of those taking online courses or classes through the Logan campus.
The second purge was done on Saturday, Sept. 8. Of roughly 29,000 students in the Utah State University System, 534 were cut from classes. A general email was sent to the students who had yet to pay prior to the eighth from the Logan campus.
USU Eastern students who have yet to pay their accounts and purged may still get back into classes. Accounts may be paid at the cashier’s desk in the Jennifer Leavitt Student Center (JLSC) or payment plans are available online through students’ banner accounts. There is a $50 fee to have these payment plans set up, which may be paid at the cashier’s desk or online.
Assistance in signing up for a payment plan is available at the academic records and registration desk in the JLSC. Students who have been dropped from classes can also sign up again in the academic advising office in the same building.
