  • If you pay with a Visa, MasterCard or Discover, the refund may be credited to the same credit card that was used at the time of payment. 
  • If you have completed the direct deposit form in WebAdvisor or the myGSU portal, the refund amount will be direct deposited into the bank account on file. It is your responsibility to keep banking information current. If it is not current, it will delay the refund process.  For more information on how to sign up for direct deposit, click here.

  • Failure to have met prior payment plan obligations may prohibit you from entering into a payment plan with the university for future semesters.
  • It is your responsibility to make payments according to the payment plan schedule. If your payment declines or does not go through due to insufficient funds, your account will be accessed a $25 late fee for each installment that is late.  The final installment is subject to a $100 late fee.
