The University activates a sanction against a student's account for non payment of tuition fees, loan repayments, library fines, field trips, accommodation charges etc. A student will be automatically placed on sanctions by the computer system, but for sanctions to be lifted the student needs to pay the amount owing and report to the relevant area the receipt number and amount of payment made as these sanctions need to be lifted manually.
