Payments may be made in the form of ECheck, Check, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Visa, and money order. Cash is discouraged.
Important Notice: Credit Card payments can only be made online; not in the office or over the phone
Payments can be made by echeck (free service) or by credit card (fee applies). Student payments can be made by signing into https://my.georgiasouthern.edu/, choosing Financial Resources, $ View/Pay Your Tuition Bill. A pop-up window will appear with the Touchnet bill + pay interface. Click My Account, Current Activity, View your Term Balance. To make a payment, from the menu bar, select Make Payment and pay by Term balance.
For credit cards, a convenience fee of 2.85% of the amount being paid (a $3.00 minimum applies) is applied to the credit card to pay for this service. Example: Student owes $1000: when the student/parent goes online to pay the $1000 owed, 2.85% of $1000 will be added to the amount being charged to the credit card, resulting in a total $1028.50 charge on the applicable credit card being used. The convenience fee is non-refundable, even if the payment is refunded.
Please note: Payments directed to Georgia Southern University should be rendered for the amount due based upon a University invoice or for the expected amount of tuition, university fees and on-campus housing/meals. Payments for off-campus housing, or other personal living expenses should be directed to the student’s personal bank account, (not the University). Payments received in excess of the amount billed will either be placed on deposit for an upcoming semester, or if paid by transfer or credit card the payment will be returned to the sender.
In the Office:
Cash, check and money order payments are accepted by the Bursar’s office located in Deal Hall on the Statesboro Campus and Victor Hall on the Armstrong Campus. Checks and money orders need to be made payable to Georgia Southern University. The student’s Eagle ID number must be included to ensure the payment is posted to the correct student account.
