Is there a way to make my payment in installments?

The GT Payment Plan allows a student to defer payment for up to 50% of the current term's tuition and mandatory fee charges OR the account balance, whichever is less. The deferrable balance is calculated after all actual and expected financial aid is applied to the student account. Under the payment plan terms, half of the deferred balance is due approximately 30 days after classes begin and the remaining amount is due approximately 60 days into the term.

How do I receive my refund?

Refunds and overpayments are electronically disbursed by direct deposit to the student's checking or savings account. Students should note that failure to register for direct deposit may result in delays in processing your refund.
