Outstanding Debt Scam Alert

August 14, 2018

The Ferris State University Department of Public Safety has been notified this morning by the Financial Aid Office that students may be receiving phone calls from a person claiming to be a university official. The caller advises the student has an outstanding debt with the university and if they fail to make payment over the phone, classes will be dropped.

THIS IS A SCAM. The university does not accept payment by phone.

Payments must be made in-person or online through the secure eBilling portal.

Any student who believes they have been targeted or has provided financial information over the phone, should call Ferris DPS at (231) 591-5000 to report the incident. For more information, visit https://ferris.edu/PublicSafety.
