Student Accounts FAQ

Prior to actual charges and financial aid going on your account (mid-July for fall semester, first week of January for spring semester, as available for summer), there are a couple tools you can use to estimate your costs and expenses.

Undergraduate students: Go to the Payment Estimator

Graduate and ADP students: 

  • Go to either the grad tuition page or ADP tuition page for your respective program
  • Find the cost per credit hour and multiply it by the number of credits you will be taking
  • Add in student body, health/counseling, graduation, and other applicable fees
  • Subtract anticipated financial aid
Once charges have been posted, all students can sign into their MyGeorgeFox account to see actual and updated financial information.
Please view this Understanding Your Statement document to see a breakdown of your student account statement.

Students have the option to pay in full at the beginning of each semester or set up a monthly payment plan. Monthly payment plans are subject to approval, limited to the cost of tuition, and there is a per-semester set-up fee. Please read the full Payment Plan Policy.

If a monthly payment plan is desired, complete the Payment Selection Form.

Traditional Undergraduates: Fall payment is due Aug. 15; spring is due one week prior to semester start.

Yes, as long as the student’s name or student ID number (preferred) is provided along with the payment (i.e., on a check's memo line). If you are an authorized user, you may make a payment toward a student's account online.

If a student would like our office to disclose account information to someone other than themselves, the student must fill out a FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) form online or in our office. The FERPA Release grants Student Financial Services permission to discuss account details with the person(s) authorized by the student. The student is able to remove permissions at any time.

The Annual Financial Agreement is required for every student in order to register each academic year. It outlines the student's financial obligations of enrollment, in addition to updating student contact information. The form is completed in the student's MyGeorgeFox task tile.
