Payment Options

Checks, cash and money orders

Make checks or money orders payable to GEORGIA TECH. When you provide a check as payment, you authorize Georgia Tech to either to use the information from your check to make a one-time electronic funds transfer from your account or to process the payment as a check transaction. Persons wishing to opt out of the check conversion must use another form of payment. For inquiries, please call 404-894-4618. The student's GT ID must be clearly printed on checks and money orders.

If making payments through a bill payment service, such as provided by your financial institution, please include the student GT ID as the account number associated with the GT payee set up. Allow sufficient time for processing and mailing in order for payment to arrive at the Bursar's Office by the payment deadline.

If a check is not paid upon presentation to the bank on which it is drawn, the payment will be reversed on the student's account and a $30 fee assessed. See the returned check policy for more information.

To mail payments to the Bursar's Office, please use the following address:

GEORGIA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY
Bursar's Office
Lyman Hall, Suite 111
225 North Avenue
Atlanta, GA 30332-0255

The Bursar's Office cashier window accepts payments Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. except holidays. Cashier windows are located on the first floor of Lyman Hall. No credit card payments are accepted at the Bursar's Office.

A drop box is located at the entry to Lyman Hall. Check or money order payments may be deposited at any time. Please do not put cash in the drop box.

Credit Card (Bank Fees Apply)

Georgia Tech uses an outside vendor to process credit card payments. A 2.75% service fee is charged by the vendor for this service. The credit card service fee is automatically added to the amount of the payment at the time it is made. A service fee may be avoided by paying via an electronic check or paying by cash or check at the Bursar's cashier window or by mailing a check to the Bursar's Office.

Georgia Tech regrets the need to assess a credit card service fee, but it is made necessary by the escalating costs of providing security for credit card payments. Rather than increasing fees further across the board, GT is charging only those who avail themselves of this service in an attempt to recoup a portion of those costs.

Electronic Check/WebCheck (FREE)

Georgia Tech offers the ability to pay by electronic check from a U.S. bank checking or savings account. To pay with an electronic check, log into the Student Payment Portal.

Please note that home equity lines of credit, investment accounts, and credit card checks are not accepted as electronic checks. If you wish to use one of these, you may mail a check to the Bursar's Office (see address above) or transfer funds to a bank checking or savings account and then pay via electronic check.

If an electronic check is not paid upon processing by the bank on which it is drawn, either because of incorrect bank routing and/or account information or insufficient funds, the payment will be reversed on the student’s account and a $30 fee assessed. See the returned check policy for more information.

International Payments (Fees Apply)

Need to make an international payment? Flywire Logo

Georgia Tech has partnered with Flywire (formerly peerTransfer) to offer an innovative and streamlined way to make international wire and credit card tuition payments. Flywire's mission is to save international students and their families money that would otherwise be lost on bank fees and unfavorable foreign exchange rates. With Flywire you are offered excellent foreign exchange rates allowing you to pay in your home currency (in most cases) and save a significant amount of money as compared to a traditional bank wire transfer.

Click or go to Flywire to begin the payment process. Please initiate your payment at least seven business days before the payment deadline to ensure your payment arrives on time. If you have any questions about making international payments with Flywire contact them at: https://flywire.com/contact or watch their student videos.

Flywire aims to provide the best price for international education payments. If you find a better price at your bank within two hours of booking a payment with Flywire, we will match it and give you a gift card for your trouble.

Please note, Georgia Tech policy is that excess funds transferred by international wire that are substantially in excess of the amount owed on the student account will be returned to the originating bank account.

Domestic Wire Transfer of Funds (Fees Apply)

For instructions on paying via a bank to bank wire transfer, please login to the Student Payment Portal and look under Announcements on the left side. Authorized users (parents or others who have been granted access) may login to the Parent Payment Portal for these instructions. For international wire payments, please see Flywire above for possible savings on existing rates and bank fees.

Prepayment

Prepayment of fees is accepted; however, prepayment does not guarantee a student will successfully register for any or all classes needed. It is the student's responsibility to properly register for classes by the registration deadline.

Financial Requirements

Although students register for classes with the University Registrar rather than the Bursar, their standing with the Bursar's Office may affect their registration. Account balances are payable by the published deadlines for each academic term. Registration is not complete until all fees have been paid.
