Methods of Payment
Oglethorpe University accepts cash, check*, money orders, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and wire transfers. A convenience fee is required for all payments by credit card. Payments made after the close of business can be placed in the payment drop box located in the door of the Business Office or you can make a payment online.
Oglethorpe also offers a payment plan option. Visit www.oglethorpe.afford.com to set up a payment plan.
Arrangements can be made for those students whose employers pay all or part of their tuition & fees.
Upon registration, the student must submit paperwork to the business office from the employer verifying the reimbursement. The student is required to pay a 25% down payment plus a $25 administration fee when submitting the paperwork. The balance is due no later than 30 days after the end of the semester being reimbursed. If the balance is not paid within this timeframe, the student will be assessed late fees and will not be permitted to register for future semesters.
*If a check made in payment for student tuition and fees is not valid upon presentation to Oglethorpe’s banking institution, a hold is placed on the student’s account, and a $50 returned check fee is added to the student’s account. Oglethorpe University reserves the right to place a student on "cash only" status for issuing a check that is not honored upon presentation to the bank.
Personal check payments will not immediately settle a debt on a student’s account. Oglethorpe University implements a waiting period of seven business days before removing any holds associated with a student’s outstanding balance when payment is made by personal check.
