Prior to each semester, a due date will be communicated by Student Business Services. By that due date, you may elect to pay your term bill balance in full or you may enroll in the Deferred Payment Plan. Use of the Deferred Payment Plan will permit you to pay the upcoming term charges in installments. In order to elect to pay on the Deferred Payment Plan, simply remit the proper portion of the net amount due by the specified due date. (Only charges related to the specific upcoming semester will be eligible for inclusion in the Deferred Payment Plan. Any “BEGINNING BALANCE” or balances related to prior periods shown on the account statement must be paid in full.)
Regardless of the payment option selected, the College offers a number of payment mediums from which you may choose. First, if you are choosing to pay the balance in full, you may make payment by mailing a check in the envelope provided with the bill. If you are choosing to participate in the Deferred Payment Plan or would like to pay online, you may either select to pay with a major credit card or through the use of an electronic check/ACH. (Please note, if you choose to pay with a credit card, TMS will be charging a 2.9% convenience fee, which is not remitted to the College. However, paying online with an electronic check is free.) You may click on the link at the top right of this page or go to the web page www.berry.afford.com to pay online. In addition, payments may be made in person at the Cashier’s office by check or cash. Unfortunately, we will no longer be able to accept credit card payments of any kind in the Cashier’s Office.
If you have any questions regarding the Payment Options or the Payment Methods described above, please feel free to contact the Student Business Services at (800) 285-0960 or (706) 236-2252.

Refund of Charges
All students who withdraw during a semester will be charged tuition and room and board, if applicable, at the rate of 10 percent of the semester charge for each week, or fraction thereof, of enrollment.

Other fees are nonrefundable.
Students receiving Title IV Federal Financial Aid (Stafford, Plus or Perkins Loans, Pell Grant, SEOG, etc.) who withdraw during a semester will be subject to the refunding of all or a portion of their financial aid to the respective loan or grant, according to Federal Regulations. Information on these withdrawal procedures and the Federal Regulations that apply are available in the Student Business Services Office.
