How do I know how much my tuition and fees are?

Email invoices are sent to students' East Georgia State College Cat Mail account after registration.  You can also check your Banner Web account to determine your tuition and fee charges.

If I am receiving financial aid, how can I determine if it has been processed and applied to my charges?

Check your Banner Web account to determine if your financial aid has been applied to your charges.

If my financial aid has been processed and I am receiving a refund, when will it be available?

East Georgia State College has partnered with BankMobile Disbursements to deliver your financial aid refund. In any given semester, the office of Business Affairs will begin disbursing refunds after the third week of classes.   Subsequent disbursement of Financial Aid Refunds will continue each Thursday. The financial aid disbursement date in Banner is not the date refunds are released to BankMobile.  If you are receiving a loan, the lender’s disbursement date is not the date refunds are released to BankMobile.

Why do I need to select a refund preference with BankMobile if I am not receiving Financial Aid?

All student refunds are sent to BankMobile for disbursement.  It's important for students to pay attention to their Banner Web Accounts due to changes in Account Summary.  Below are examples of situations that may result in a Refund and the Banner Codes which signifies a student is due a refund.

  • Student pays for classes out-of-pocket and then withdraws before the drop class deadline (REFN)
  • Student over pays for tuition and fees (OVPY)
  • Student received Financial Aid, and after tuition and fees are paid, there is money left for student (FARB)
Will I be able to use my financial aid to purchase books?

If your financial aid award amount has been “memo/authorized” to your student account and exceeds the amount of tuition and fees you owe, you may be able to charge books at the East Georgia State College Bookstore using a percentage of those funds.  However, you must give EGSC permission to deduct additional charges from excess financial aid.

How do I authorize EGSC to deduct additional charges from excess financial aid?

Four questions will pop up when you log in to Banner Web for the first time. These questions are asking you whether or not you want the Business Office to use your financial aid to pay for other charges such as books, prior semester charges, or non-institutional charges such as parking tickets, fines, etc.

If I don't receive financial aid, when must I pay my tuition and fees?

It is a Board of Regents policy that all tuition and fees are due upon registration.  Final fee payment deadline is the date by which all tuition and fees must be paid to prevent cancellation of your classes.  Final Fee Payment Deadline will be posted on the Academic Calendar and e-mail invoices will be sent to student Cat Mail accounts.
