Business Office FAQ


How do I determine how much I owe?

The current catalog online lists fees and costs associated with each program offered by GGBTS. By simply multiplying the “per unit cost” listed in the catalog by the number of units in which you’ve enrolled and adding the appropriate registration fee, and any course fees, you can determine the total cost of enrolling per semester. Please refer to the current catalogue for the latest tuition and fees.

How may I pay?

The Cashier’s window is open Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm. The school currently accepts payments in U.S. currency by cash, check, Visa, and MasterCard. After hours, please drop your payment in the Accounts Receivable drop slot near the Cashier’s window or send it via campus mail to Business Office - Box 956. You may also pay online using your “MY GGBTS” ID and pin, which can be obtained from the Registrar’s office, or call with credit card information to 415-380-1360.

Why should I keep my receipt?

If there is ever a reason to provide proof of payment for your school expenses, please be sure to maintain your records accordingly. We do not keep duplicate receipts, nor can we create them. If you ever show a discrepancy regarding an amount paid or a balance on your account, having your receipt is your proof of payment. If you drop off or mail a payment a receipt is only sent on request.

Will I receive statements from the Business Office?

Statements for any student with a balance owed are generated on the 15th of the month and mailed out or placed in your campus box shortly thereafter. If your student account does not show a current balance you WILL NOT receive a statement.  You will not be invoiced for any balance on your account. It is your responsibility to maintain your account and be aware of all due dates. Your student account information is also available to you on-line.

What if I drop a class after I paid for it?

After the last day to pay, refer to the current catalog on ggbts.edu for the refund schedule. All credits will remain on your account until the student notifies the business office for a refund request.

What if I want to add classes after that last day to pay?

Any classes after the last day to pay must be immediately paid for upon registering for them. Failure to bring  your account into good financial standing will result in being dropped from the course/courses after the last day to add.

Can I use my tuition assistance benefits from the military?

GGBTS does not accept Tuition Assistance payments from the military for active duty personnel. Veteran’s Affairs (VA) Tuition Assistance benefits are accepted.

Certificates of Eligibility (COE) documents will need to be provided to the Business Office prior to the term’s payment deadline to hold the student in courses in expectation of the VA’s payment. Any amount not covered by the VA TA benefits is payable by the student on the term’s payment deadline. Please contact the Business Office for further information.

Certificates of Eligibility (COE) documents will also need to be provided to GGBTS’s VA Certifying Official to initiate the release of benefits from the VA. The Registrar is the Certifying Official for students in California. Students in Arizona, Washington, and Colorado should contact their regional campus with a copy of their COE for VA Enrollment Certification.

Eligibility documents for the VA’s Vocational Rehabilitation benefits will also need to be on file with the Business Office and the respective campus’ VA Certifying Official prior to the term’s payment deadline.

VA payments for Post 9/11 (Ch. 33) GI Bill and Voc Rehab TA benefits will be sent directly to GGBTS via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT). Please feel free to monitor your student account to verify GGBTS’s receipt of payment. VA payments for the Montgomery (Ch. 30) GI Bill TA benefits will be sent directly to the student who will then need to remit payment to GGBTS.

Can I use my employer's assistance tuition benefits?

GGBTS does accept approved tuition assistance benefits from employers. Eligibility documents will need to be provided to the Business office prior to the term's payment deadline to hold the student in classes. Any amount not covered by the TA benefits is payable by the student on the term's payment deadline. Please contact the Business Office for further information.

Can I apply for a deferment for my online courses?

Online tuition charges are not eligible for the deferred payment plan, though online course credit hours can be counted toward full-time status for the deferred payment plan for a student also enrolled in face-to-face courses. Online tuition and fee charges need to be paid in full by the term's payment deadline so only enroll in the number of courses that you can pay for on time.

What is GGBTS’ FAFSA school code?

GGBTS does not accept Title IV Federal Student Aid and does not have a school code.
