Financial Responsibility Agreement FAQ

The Student Financial Responsibility Agreement (herein referred to simply as agreement) informs students of the financial responsibilities associated with enrolling for classes at Bowling Green State University and explains the potential consequences if a student fails to meet those obligations.

Our goal is to help our students understand the cost of their education and the financial policies associated with their enrollment at Bowling Green State University.  This agreement, in conjunction with our website, letters and other documentation, helps define the University’s expectations for payment, and allows us to clearly inform students of our policies related to billing, late payment penalties, contact methods, etc.
