Holds & Delinquent Accounts

The Office of Student Accounts is committed to helping you resolve your delinquent balance.  If your account becomes delinquent, contact our office immediately so we can discuss your options.

All charges due to the University must be paid in full by the payment due date published each semester.  Students whose accounts are delinquent will not be permitted to register for the next term or receive transcripts or diplomas.  Georgia State may require payment of a delinquent account to be in the form of certified funds, such as cash, money order, or a cashier’s check.

Collections Process

The student receivable process begins when charges are posted to their student account.  If the student’s account is not paid by the due date, a past due balance hold will be placed and further collection efforts will be made to collect the amount owed.  If the account is sent to a collection agency, additional fees will be added to the balance due.  These fees may add up to over 15% of the original balance due. In addition, a delinquency report may be filed with a credit bureau.
