This does not seem appropriate as you are not being given any notice and time to pay the bill before the due date. It is the student handbook that governs billing policies and also governs when and how those may be changed. You will need to look there first to see if the school has violated one of its own policies and then you can write a letter to the dean pointing out the school's error and ask for them to correct it. If that does not work, then you may be able to sue the school in a declaratory judgment action for a court establishing the proper applicable policy and due date as the handbook serves as a contract between the school and its students.
