Info on check payment handling changes

Wednesday, August 24th, 2016

To expedite the payment process for students paying in Portland, Student Accounts has changed how we handle checks. If paying by check, your payment will now be processed as an electronic (ACH) payment via the MyGFU CashNet payment site. This will shorten the time it takes to process your payment, and it allows for an electronic receipt to be emailed to you for your records. What you will see that is different on the banking side is that your bank statement will show an ACH payment, not a check.

If you prefer to not have your check processed in this way, we have pre-addressed payment envelopes available that you can use to mail your payment to Newberg. Our Newberg address is: Student Accounts, 414 N. Meridian #6129, Newberg, OR 97132.

Insurance Waiver Reminder!

Tuesday, July 26th, 2016

If you have been charged for health insurance and already have coverage, please go to university forms in MyGFU to complete your insurance waiver. Once finished, your charges will generally be updated within 24 hours.

If 24 hours has passed and you are still being charged, it is possible you did not complete the form fully. If you left any of the fields blank, your form will not be processed. A common mistake is to not furnish the address for your insurance policy.

To correct a previously submitted form you must go again to the University Forms area, but this time you need to select the completed form at the bottom (it doesn’t look like a hyperlink, but it is one!). Then simply reopen the form you submitted previously and add the needed information. Twenty-four hours later, your charges should be updated.

For additional help or information about insurance, email Molly Hickok at mhickok@georgefox.edu.
