As an essential and integral part of the student’s educational program at Gallaudet University, the student account allows Gallaudet University to post tuition, fees, room, board, and other charges as well as record payments from student loans, scholarships, grants, and vocational rehabilitation authorizations. Per Gallaudet University’s policy, the account balance must be paid in full (international students) or under the balance threshold each semester at posted dates before the student can pre-register for courses and enroll for the next semester. To obtain a diploma and transcript upon graduation, the student balance must be paid off in full. 

All students have full access to viewing and paying the account balance in GallyPay/Bison and are responsible for frequently monitoring to ensure that all financial affairs are taken care of quickly and on time. This includes maintaining close contact and working relationship with Financial Aid Office, Student Financial Services, departments, sponsors, and Vocational Rehabilitation agencies. The student bills are available for viewing on GallyPay e-billing system during the semester.

If the student graduates or withdraws from Gallaudet University with an outstanding balance, Gallaudet will send two warning letters to the student’s HOME address of record 30 and 60 days after the close of the semester. If the account balance remains unpaid after the mailing of the second warning letter, the student’s account will be forwarded to the collection agency. The collection agency will add a thirty-three percent collections fee to the account balance and the student will be responsible for paying both the account balance and collections fee. The student’s name will be posted on the account default list through credit bureaus nationwide. The Office of Student Financial Services strives hard to provide the best service to students, parents, sponsors, and agencies. Our goal is to maintain accurate financial records and to communicate to the community about important financial information and due dates.
