Options to Pay Your Bill
In addition to the Financial Aid and Scholarships mentioned above, many companies offer tuition assistance. Talk with your employer to see if you qualify for any educational benefits. GVSU offers a special financing program for students who qualify for their employer's tuition reimbursement program that allows the amount of tuition and fees paid for by the employer to be deferred until the end of the semester. More information, including the application and requirements, can be found on the Student Accounts Company Deferment Plan page. If this is something you're interested in and choose to pursue, here are instructions for how to set up your Deferment Plan and payment due dates.
The Student Accounts page also has much more information regarding payments, forms of payment, deadlines / class cancellations, refunds, tuition rates, & more.
You'll find a video library showing you how to do everything from register for a course, to find your academic advisor, to request your transcript.
