All Bankruptcy Notices are forwarded to the Collection Department. A memo is sent to various departments on campus advising of the bankruptcy filing. The departments are to return the memo listing the amounts that are owed. The Collection Department files all notices to the court, and monitors the accounts during the bankruptcy stay. Once the bankruptcy is discharged or dismissed, the Collection Department notifies the appropriate University department.
