Payment of Tuition & Fees

Due Date for Payment

Bills will be made available through Self-Service for all registered students in mid-July for the fall semester and in mid-December for the spring semester. Accounts must be settled by the student by the due date, which is three weeks prior to the semester start. A settled account is defined as total payments covering all current charges on the student statement. Total payment includes

  • payments by ACH, check, credit card, or cash;
  • Georgian Court scholarships awarded to the student;
  • student loans approved by the lender and accepted by the student;
  • federal or state grant or scholarship aid as approved by the Georgian Court Office of Financial Aid; and 
  • expected payments through enrollment in Nelnet.

Charges not paid by the due date are subject to a $55.00 late fee. A hold will also be placed on the student record that prevents the student from registering for additional classes, obtaining transcripts, and receiving a diploma until the balance is paid.

Delinquent accounts will be sent to a collection agency. All collection and legal fees may be added to the outstanding balance for which the student will be responsible.

Payment Methods

Payment can be made via Self-Service or directly to the Office of Student Accounts. Online payments through Self-Service can be made via ACH from a bank account at no cost. Credit card payments can only be made online. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.  Credit card payments incur a nonrefundable fee of 2.75% of the payment amount. Payments in the form of check, money order, or cash may be made during posted office hours in Mercy Center. Checks should be made payable to Georgian Court University.

Tuition Payment Plan

The university offers a monthly installment plan through Nelnet. There is a $52.00 application fee for each semester in which the student or family enrolls; however, there are no interest charges.

Employer Reimbursements

Students whose education will be financed by their employer may be able to defer their tuition payment. Arrangements must be made with the Office of Student Accounts prior to the bill due date. If payment is not made within five weeks of the end of semester, company reimbursements will no longer be accepted for deferred payment. A letter on company stationery confirming employee eligibility with employee contact information to verify such eligibility must be submitted by the due date.
