TYPES OF FINANCIAL AID header_icon


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 TermPayment Deadline
Spring 2017January 9, 2017 (or the date of move-in to campus if earlier)
Summer 2017May 11, 2017
Fall 2017August 7, 2017 (or the date of move-in to campus if earlier)

Please note that these deadlines apply to traditional students only. For access 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.

You can view your student account information or make payments online via the CampusNexus® Student Portal. You may also pay in the Student Services 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.

In order to be financially clear to the institution, these things must  be completed:

  1. All financial aid must be accepted on the CampusNexus® student portal.
  2. Students taking out loans must have completed their Master Promissory Note and Entrance Counseling. Both items may be completed at www.studentloans.gov.
  3. Any remaining balance must be paid or setup on a payment plan.

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.

FINANCIAL AID

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.

All students are able to make payment plan arrangements in house through the Student Services Office. There is no 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 and must make the first payment in order to complete the application process.

Contact Student Services at 706-385-1018 or via email at student.assistance@point.edu for more information or to sign up for a plan.

REFUND SCHEDULE

Excess financial aid funds remaining on student accounts after book purchases will be issued when the money is received from the source by the University. These stipends will not be issued until Point is in possession of the funds.

The last day to withdraw from classes and still receive a full tuition refund, for traditional students, is the same as the payment deadline for that semester. Refunds will be issued as follows:

Time of ChangeRefund

After the drop/add period ends0%

Point has partnered with BankMobile to offer electronic refunds. Students will receive an information packet from BankMobile containing instructions on setting up an account at the beginning of their first semester of study.
