Tuition and Fees

The schedule of tuition and fees has been authorized by the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia. The schedule is subject to change prior to each semester. Early registration is not valid unless tuition and fees are paid by the specified date. Registration at the beginning of each semester is not complete until all tuition and fees have been paid, and the student is not eligible to attend class until registration is complete. Payment may be made by cash, check, VISA, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, money order, financial aid or payment plan with NelNet Business Solutions. However, payment by check is not complete until the check clears the bank. In the event a check is returned as insufficient funds, the student will be notified that the check must be covered within ten (10) working days of notification date and a penalty will be charged. Payments that are not tendered will be withdrawal of the class schedule by the registrar, and the issuer of the check will be turned over to the district attorney or solicitor for criminal prosecution.
