Drop for Non Payment is a process that removes all courses in a specific semester for a student for failure to settle an outstanding balance for that term.  Students must pay in full all tuition and mandatory fees by the deadline set by the University.  If students cannot pay in full, they must sign up for a payment plan and pay the first installment by the deadline set by the University.  Failure to pay in full or sign up for the installment plan and pay the first installment will result in the student being dropped from all of their classes for the semester due to non-payment.

By registering for classes, students agree to pay all tuition and required fees associated with their registration, optional services and other fees, whether paying in full or utilizing the installment payment option.  Failure to pay tuition, fees or other charges may result in possible cancellation. Unpaid tuition, fees, and other charges are subject to the Augusta University collection policy and the student will be responsible for all expenses incurred to collect the account.

Students who do not plan to attend any or all registered courses must drop the courses in POUNCE by the end of the Add/Drop period.  Students who fail to do so will be responsible for all tuition and fees associated with their registration.

YOU HAVE BEEN DROPPED

 

MANAGING YOUR STUDENT ACCOUNT

Pay any past due charges on your student account.  Any payment you submit will be applied to these charges first.

Remember to check your account after any change in your schedule or the addition of housing or meal charges.

If you are receiving financial aid or other awards, review your requirements in POUNCE to make sure your financial aid file is complete and that you have satisfied all eligibility requirements for disbursement.

If you are receiving funding from an outside source (i.e., agency, scholarship, sponsor), work closely with them to disburse your funds promptly. If you are paying tuition and fees from personal funds, don’t wait until the last minute.

It you are a TAP recipient, review POUNCE carefully to ensure your balance is clear at the payment deadline as TAP does not cover all of your charges.

If you are applying for in-state tuition classification or for an in-state waiver, please pay close attention to the application deadlines to ensure a decision can be rendered and the account updated prior to the payment deadline.

If you are applying for in-state tuition classification or for an in-state waiver and a decision has not been made at the payment deadline, please plan to make payment for the differential and be reimbursed if the status is later changed.

If you are completing an insurance waiver, please do it well in advance of the payment deadline to ensure the credit to your account. Please plan to make payment of the insurance charge and be reimbursed if the status is later changed.

If you pay with a Credit Card the transaction must go through POUNCE, please complete payment during business hours prior to the deadline in case technical assistance is needed.

If needed, you can apply for an Emergency Loan to assist you with your fee payment.

Be sure to read your Augusta University email and monitor the Augusta University Website and POUNCE to stay informed of your payments and enrollment status.

Revise Non-Degree Progression and Graduation Requirement

If you receive a call from Augusta University regarding an outstanding balance, immediately log in to your POUNCE account to review your account and clear any balance prior to the payment deadline.


HOW TO AVOID BEING DROPPED

Check your balance on the payment deadline and ensure you have a zero or credit balance based on prior payment or Financial Aid.

Make a payment:

  • Online: In POUNCE, click on the myBill link, then select "Make a Payment." Pay with electronic check (using bank account information) or credit card.

  • In Person: Pay with cash or check at the Campus Cashiering walk-up window in the Business Office-Payne Hall, Summerville Campus.

Enroll in the Nelnet Payment Plan (DPP) and Pay the First Installment.

Check the Status of Your Financial Aid.  If your authorized aid is less than expected, review your checklist to ensure you have completed all Financial Aid requirements.  Contact Financial Aid for assistance.  

Start off the next semester stress-free!  We strongly recommend that you ensure your financial arrangements are in order for the upcoming semester before leaving campus for winter and summer breaks.


WHAT TO DO IF YOU HAVE BEEN DROPPED

If you are dropped for non-payment, you are notified via your Augusta University email address.

Don't delay-take action right away!

Re-register for classes.  However, there is no assurance that your original schedule will be available.

ADD/DROP: You must register via POUNCE If your classes are eligible to be added back to your account, payment is due the same day by 5PM.  If payment if not received, your classes will again be dropped for non-payment.

LATE REGISTRATION: You must complete the Registration Exception Form and return to the Registrar's Office for processing.  If your classes are eligible to be added back to your account, payment is due immediately.  If payment if not received, your classes will again be dropped for non-payment.

Students who are dropped for non-payment, who register after the initial payment deadline for the first time, or who add/drop courses which cause a balance will be required to pay in full or sign up for an installment plan and pay the first installment by the end of add/drop or run the risk of being dropped from all classes for non-payment.

Keep in mind phone and email response times can be longer than usual during peak periods at the start of term if you need to speak to your advisor or Financial Aid counselor.

If you are applying for in-state tuition classification or for an in-state waiver, please pay close attention to the application deadlines to ensure a decision can be rendered and the account updated prior to the payment deadline.

If you have been dropped for non-payment and no longer plan to attend Augusta University for the semester in question, no action is required.  


 

FAQ

If your classes were dropped for non-payment during:

ADD/DROP: You must register via POUNCE.  If your classes are eligible to be added back to your account, payment is due the same day by 5PM.  If payment if not received, your classes will again be dropped for non-payment.

LATE REGISTRATION: You must complete the Registration Exception Form and return to the Registrar's Office for processing.  If your classes are eligible to be added back to your account, payment is due immediately.  If payment if not received, your classes will again be dropped for non-payment.

If you plan to use Financial Aid or Military & Veteran Services to pay for your classes, you must contact their office prior to the payment deadline to ensure your anticipated aid will cover your entire balance.  If you will have a remaining balance after the anticipated aid, it must be paid via POUNCE by the payment deadline.

 Students are eligible to re-register for the same classes only if there are still open spaces in the course.  The Schedule of Classes can be used as a guide when re-registering.

If any course is added during late schedule adjustment and charges are incurred, payment is due immediately.

The Total Bill is a comprehensive summary of all charges for the term posted to your student account by the payment deadline. These charges generally include (but are not limited to) tuition, student fees, housing, meal plans, parking, health insurance, and course fees.

You must have paid in full or be enrolled in a payment plan to avoid being dropped for non-payment.

You can expect to receive a 100% reversal on all charges related to tuition and registration fees for a term.

Fee reversals for housing, meal plans, parking, health insurance, and other services follow separate criteria.  Contact each office directly for more information on their practices.

No, your course registrations are cancelled entirely and the seats are made available to other students.  You will need to register depending on course availability at that time and make payment immediately following.

Waitlisted classes appear on your schedule, but are not included in the total number of credits enrolled for the semester.  Tuition and fees are calculated only for the credits you are officially enrolled in and do not include waitlisted classes. 

If you are waitlisted, it is your responsibility to monitor your AU email to determine if you have been enrolled in the class.  If, after you pay your tuition and fees, you are allowed into a class for which you have been waitlisted, payment must be made prior to the next payment deadline or within 10 days of the charge.
