Automatic payments can be made from a checking or savings account or from select credit cards. A transaction fee will be charged on credit card payments.
Georgia Special Needs Recipients
An estimated credit for expected Georgia Special Needs (GSN) Scholarship payments will be credited to your account based on 90% of the most current Special Needs Scholarship Award Sheet available when the Enrollment form is issued.
