  • Add / Drop


    Students can add courses anytime during the registration period as listed in the current academic calendar. The academic calendar can also be found in the GSU Registration Instruction booklet. Note: courses will NOT be added after the registration period ends.

    The 'My Class Schedule' provides refund and withdrawal deadline details for specific courses. Classes dropped after the specified deadlines will appear on your transcript as a “W.” Some courses have special refund and withdrawal dates which are also found for each class under "Search for Sections" on the myGSU portal.

    NOTE: If you are receiving financial aid, you must contact the Financial Aid Office before dropping or withdrawing from a class to determine how this action will affect your financial aid. Your failure to do so may impact your eligibility.

  • Payment


    The payment deadline is based on your registration date. The Financial Services office may clarify on payment dates.

    Payment may be made via the GSU Portal, through the mail or at the Cashier’s Office using check, cash, money order, MasterCard®, Visa® or Discover® Card[MAR1] . Please DO NOT send cash through the mail.

    When dropping or adding courses, please drop course(s) first before adding new courses. All unwanted course(s) must be dropped by the 100 percent refund deadline or you will be obligated to pay for the course(s). You may withdraw from courses online. See the online schedule of classes for refund and withdrawal deadline details for specific courses.
