Financial Responsibility Agreement

The Student Financial Responsibility Agreement is an agreement that outlines and informs students of the financial obligations and responsibilities associated with enrolling for classes at BGSU. It is required to be signed before a new student enrolls for classes and also explains the potential consequences that may be taken if a student fails to meet their financial obligations.

The agreement only needs to be signed once per Undergraduate or Graduate career at BGSU.
