IMPORTANT NOTE: Returned Payment (insufficient funds): All payments returned due to insufficient
funds (NSF) are subject to an insufficient funds penalty fee. Effective March 24, 2014, the NSF fee will be $30. In addition,
the "stop payment" of a check or other form of payment does not constitute an official withdrawal from Middle
Georgia State University and will also result in the assessment of an NSF penalty fee.
