In order to assist graduate students who hold graduate assistantships, Georgia State University is piloting this spring a payment plan option. Students employed by the university as graduate assistants are eligible to use their payroll checks as a method of paying student tuition and mandatory fees not covered by their tuition waiver. For legal reasons related to state law, mandatory insurance charges cannot be included in this plan and must be paid by the fee payment deadline.
To qualify for this payment option, you must be hired as a full time graduate assistant for the spring 2013 term; be awarded a full time graduate assistant waiver for the spring 2013 term; have a student account balance of at least $300 after all financial aid has been applied, and receive monthly pay sufficient to cover the monthly payment amount.
For the spring, monthly payment deadlines will coincide with GSU payroll disbursements for February 2013, March 2013, and April 2013. In order to participate in this pilot, you must agree to allow GSU to automatically deduct monthly payments from your checking or savings bank account. Please note, if your monthly payment is returned by your bank for any reason (i.e. NSF), your student account will be assessed a $35 returned check fee and the missed payment will be added to your next monthly installment. A hold will also be placed on your account which will prevent all registration activity, graduation, and receiving a transcript.
Verification will be made against your record to ensure that you have been awarded a full time graduate assistant tuition waiver; students who have not been awarded a full time graduate assistant tuition waiver for spring 2013 are not eligible to participate in this pilot.
Follow these instructions to enroll in the plan. The enrollment period for spring 2013 is December 5, 2012, through January 11, 2013 for regular registration and January 14, 2013 through January 18, 2013 for late registration.
Please be sure to enroll in the plan and pay any balance not covered under the plan (i.e. health insurance) by 5:00PM, Friday January 11, 2013 (or by January 18, 2013 if you register during late registration), to avoid having your spring 2013 registration canceled.
