Point University offers payment plans that allow students and their parents to pay term costs in installments, including tuition, fees, room and board.

There is no enrollment fee or monthly accrued interest. 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 and must make the first payment in order to complete the application process.

Contact the Student Billing and Payments Center at 706-385-1018 or via email at student.billing@point.edu for more information or to sign up for a plan.

Payment Plan Enrollment

If you are unable to pay your balance in full and need to enroll in a 5-month payment plan for fall and spring terms, you will need to complete a Tuition Installment Agreement (TIA) for the academic year before the August 7 due date. The TIA may be found at point.edu/tia or you may request by emailing Student.Billing@point.edu. For summer term, we offer a 3-month payment plan.

To avoid late charges and to prevent delays in registering, please be sure your monthly payments are paid by the due dates. If monthly payments are not received by the 18th of the month, a $50 late payment fee will be charged to the student’s account.

  • Payment Plan Enrollment Period for Returners: July 1 – August 7
  • Payment Plan Enrollment Period for New Students: Will be completed during your Summer Starting Point event.
  • Payment Plan Enrollment Deadline for Summer Only: May 7

Payments are made via the Student Billing & Payment Center website, telephone, in person or by e-check by clicking here.

Monthly Billing Statements

Electronic billing is Point University’s official method of billing. Paper bills will not be sent. The student will be sent an email with the subject line “Your Point Statement is Now Available,” which will be sent to your official Point University email address each month. If you are not paying your student bill yourself, you are responsible for communicating with those who are paying your bill.

When you view your statement, look at you student account carefully. Be sure your statement reflects all charges for which you are receiving aid, as well as anticipated adjustments in Point University aid.

Registration

Although students register for classes with Point’s Registrar, their account standing with the Student Billing and Payment Center can affect their registration. An individual who has an outstanding balance to Point will not be allowed to register for classes, receive a transcript, or receive their diploma until their account is satisfied with Point University.

Payment Methods

Point University offers the following payment methods:

  • Pay through your student portal.
  • Pay in person at the Student Services Desk in the Lanier Academic Center.
  • Send your payment by mail: 507 W. 10th Street, West Point, GA 31833
  • International payments can be made at point.flywire.com.
  • Pay through an electronic invoice emailed directly to your Point University email.

Financial Aid and Loans

All questions about financial aid should be directed to the Financial Aid Office. For federal Direct Loans, first-time borrowers must sign a Master Promissory Note (MPN) and complete Entrance Counseling. Loans will not disbursed to the student’s account until these two steps are completed. 

Outside scholarship checks from corporations, private parties, or foundations should be sent directly to the Financial Aid Office at 507 West 10th Street, West Point, Georgia 31833. Financial Aid staff will apply the scholarship amount to the student’s financial aid for the academic year and forward to the Student Billing and Payment Center for crediting to the student’s account. 

Refunds

If money you receive from awards, grants, scholarships, and loans exceeds the amount you are being charged for the term, the Student Billing & Payment Center will authorize direct deposit or a refund check through BankMobile, our third-party disbursement vendor. All students are required to have an active account set up with BankMobile. 

The Student Billing & Payment Center reserves the right to withhold any refund when the student has an outstanding balance. Point University is authorized to offset any credit balances against any debts owed by the student to the university.

The tax form should be used by your tax preparer to determine your eligibility for a tax credit. The 1098T forms are mailed to students by January 31st of the following year.
