Policy Statement
All students enrolled at the University of Georgia shall be required to pay their student account balance by the stated deadline in order to avoid other penalties such as late fees, schedule cancellation and collections. Student Account balances include charges for tuition and fees as well as other expenses incurred on campus such as course and lab fees, housing, food services, parking, etc.
Reason for policy
Board of Regents Policy 7.3.3 states that all tuition and fees (mandatory and elective) are due and payable upon registration.

Student account payment deadlines are published on the Bursar and Treasury Services's website under the Deadlines tab. Failure to make payment by the published deadlines can result in late fees as well as schedule cancellation.  Should a student be cancelled for nonpayment, they can contact the Registrar’s Office regarding eligibility to reinstate as the Registrar’s Office oversees the reinstatement process.  Policies and procedures concerning reinstatement are explained in detail on the Registrar’s website,  It is important to note reinstatement is not guaranteed and must be completed by the date specified each term.  Students reinstated must pay their account balance, plus the reinstatement fee, within three business days in order to keep their schedule intact. 

All student account balances over 120 days old have the potential to be sent to collections.  The student will be responsible for collection costs in the event the account is sent to collections.
