Third Party Billing
If you participate in a third party billing program for tuition, fees, and/or books and if the third party will be making payment directly to the University of West Georgia, you should contact the Bursar's Office prior to the fee payment deadline for the Semester in which you will be attending. We currently bill the following agencies: Veteran’s Administration, Independent Living Program, Prepaid Affordable College Tuition (PACT), W.I.A. and Texas Tomorrow.
Past Due Accounts
An account is considered past due after the drop-add period in the semester. A hold is placed on all past due accounts which will prohibit the student from registering for any future semesters or from obtaining an official transcript from the University until the account is paid in full. All past due accounts are subject to possible administrative drop and/or referral to an outside Collection Agency for collection. If an account is referred to an outside agency, the student is responsible for paying the cost of collection to the collection agency and the account is reported to a national credit bureau.
In January of each year, you will receive a 1098T for the previous calendar year for which you may be eligible to claim a tax credit. To view or print your 1098T online, please visit http://www.1098t.com/. For more information regarding the tax credit please refer to IMPORTANT TAX INFORMATION.

Restriction of Services to Students - Board of Regents Policy - BPM 10.1.1
All students having student accounts with a balance older than ninety (90) days must have services withheld until the balance is paid. The restriction of services will prevent the student from having access to transcripts, registering for additional classes, or graduating until the receivable is paid. At many institutions, this restriction of services may be referenced as a "hold" on the student's records.
Note: Institutions may have more stringent restrictions that this section requires.
