Frequently Asked Questions
How does this policy affect me?
This policy will not affect you if have paid in full or if you are current on your Installment Payment Plan. If you have failed to satisfy account balances by the posted due date on the monthly bill preceeding the semester start will result in the cancellation of class registration, on-campus housing and dining/meal plans. If you have any questions about account balances, please contact the Bursar at 419-372-2815.
What if I am deregistered, how will I know?
You will receive an email from the Office of Registration and Records; you may also check your registration in the Student Center of MyBGSU.
If I am deregistered, will it affect my financial aid?
If you have aid, you should check with Student Financial Aid Office at 419-372-2651, since loss of academic registration will likely affect your aid.
Will I have time to re-register?
Yes, if you make financial arrangements quickly after you have been deregistered. Contact the Bursar’s Office at 419-372-2815 to pay in full or arrange an Installment Payment Plan.
I have been deregistered, what do I do?
If you have been deregistered and you wish to continue your studies, contact the Bursar’s Office at 419-372-2815 to obtain the amount to be paid.
What if I have a third party scholarship and have not made Student Financial Aid aware of the additional aid, will I be deregistered?
If you provide Student Financial Aid a letter from the third party stating you are receiving aid, then Student Financial Aid will reflect that scholarship as anticipated aid. If this aid does not cover the entire balance, and you have made no other financial arrangements to cover the balance then you will be subject to deregistration. Your account will be monitored to ensure the third party scholarship or additional aid pays out.
What happens if I am deregistered? What happens to my schedule and housing assignment?
Classes and room assignments will not be held for students who are deregistered. You will need to pre-pay in order to register again and contact the Office of Residence Life for a new housing assignment.
What is being done about students who could have a bill after being refunded?
Targeted outreach will be done for students who have not signed a Title IV authorization. The Bursars office will also put a code on these accounts to ensure they are not deregistered.
What can be done if I have exhausted all financial aid options and cannot get a loan because my parents refuse to co-sign or do not have the credit score necessary to qualify for a loan?
To avoid deregistration, enroll in an installment payment plan and be current on your payments.
Will third party scholarships be factored into the payment schedule for the Installment Payment Plan?
The total amount due on the Installment payment plan will be reduced by the approved third party scholarships amount.
Can I be deregistered, if I have pending financial aid because I am not enrolled full-time due to a wait list on a class?
Yes. Contact the Student Financial Aid office immediately to update your enrollment status.
Is it possible to sign up for the IPP online?
Yes, please sign up by going to MyBGSU->Financials -> Bursar Services -> Enroll in Payment Plan

Can past due balances be rolled into a current IPP?
No. Past due balances cannot be rolled into an IPP, and would be expected to be paid in full along with the first IPP installment payment.
