Paying Your Bill
After you have met with the Financial Aid Office to determine your eligibility and award package, the remaining balance will be due by the payment deadline each semester. For traditional students, the deadlines are as follows:
|Traditional Student Term
|Summer Session I
|Summer Session II
Please note that these deadlines apply to traditional students only. For traditional students, payment deadlines correspond with the drop/add deadline for the term in question.
Access students have a payment deadline of 4:30 p.m. on the first night of class of each new semester.
Students who have not met the payment deadline will have their schedules dropped.
We recognize that many students are unable to pay their bills in full before the start of the semester or prefer the convenience of installment payments. We are pleased to offer our Tuition Payment Plan to allow students to make payments in installments throughout the semester. More information about the payment plans available to you can be found here.
You can view your student account information or make payments online via the CampusVue Student Portal. You may also pay in the Business Office, or over the phone with a credit card, during regular office hours (8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday). We accept cash, check, money order or credit card (American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa).
Our student accounts staff is here to help you through this process. Please contact us at 706-385-1018 or by email with any questions or concerns you may have.
Very few families can afford to send a student to college without financial aid. Point’s Financial Aid Office is more than willing to work with students and their parents or guardians to come up with a financial aid package that will meet the student's needs. More than 95 percent of Point students receive some sort of financial aid, including scholarships, need-based grants and education loans. In order to ensure you receive the financial aid you need, please be sure to complete your FAFSA and other paperwork on time each year. If you have questions, please contact the Financial Aid Office at 706-385-1018 or by email.
Tuition Payment Plan
A payment plan is available to students who are unable to meet their
financial obligations through financial aid and prepayment of their
bills or for those who prefer the convenience of installment payments.
with the spring 2013 semester, traditional students are able to make
payment plan arrangements in house through the Student Services Office.
Students participating must pay a $35 enrollment fee. All previous
balances must be paid before students can participate in the payment
plan. Students must apply for tuition payment plans before the payment
deadline for each semester.
Contact Student Services at 706-385-1018 or via email at email@example.com for more information or to sign up for a plan.
Paying for Books
Point University has partnered with eCampus.com to allow students to use excess financial aid to purchase textbooks. Students will be notified if they are eligible to purchase books with student account credit balances via their Point email accounts.
The Point eCampus.com virtual bookstore can be accessed by choosing “Online Bookstore” from the Quicklinks drop-down menu at the top of any page on our website.
Refunds remaining on student accounts after book purchases will be issued when the money is received from the source by the University. Refunds will not be made until Point is in possession of the funds. Students should not depend on receiving their refunds by a certain date, as refunds will not be available before the end of the seventh week of the semester at the earliest.
The last day to withdraw from classes and still receive a full refund, for traditional students, is the same as the payment deadline for that semester. Refunds will be issued as follows:
- Tuition and activity fees: first week, 100%
- Room and board: refunds will be made according to the number of weeks in residence (a minimum of six weeks' room and board will be charged)
Point has partnered with SallieMae to offer electronic refunds. Please sign up for your account here.
