Policy Statement
Pursuant to Board of Regents Policy 7.3.3, all tuition and fees (mandatory and elective) are due and payable upon registration.  Failure to make payment by the semester due date will result in a late fee of $50.00. Late fees may increase to $100.00 if payment is still outstanding by the deadline for Registration and Drop and Add registrations. Late fees are assessed the day after the due date. Students receive email notices indicating there is charge activity on their account and also warning emails regarding potential late fees. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure their account is paid in full. Students are given three grace waivers for their academic career and may use these waivers to remove late fees.
Reason for policy
Late fees ensure that Student Account balances are paid in full prior to semester schedule cancellation and provide necessary funding for the university.
To request a grace waiver the student must send an email from their UGAmail account to with the subject “Grace Waiver” briefly stating that they wish to use a grace waiver for their late fee.
