Financial Responsibility Statement
Dear ETSU students,
Users logging into Goldlink may be prompted to review a new document called “Financial Responsibility Statement.” This narrative outlines the financial responsibility a student will assume for courses he or she will be registered for starting spring 2017 term. Terms in the document include but are not limited to:
- Responsibility of student to assume any collection costs related to debt recovery;
- Permission for ETSU to contact students via their cell phones;
- Obligations of students to update contact information; and
- Permission for the university to send 1098-T tax forms to students via email unless the student requests otherwise.
After reviewing the document, you will be asked to either “Accept” or “Do Not Accept” the terms of the statement. If you select “Accept,” you will proceed to the “Look Up Classes” section. Those who do not accept the terms of the document will be redirected back to the Main Menu.
Should you have any questions about this process, feel free to email the ETSU Bursar’s Office at email@example.com.
Direct Deposit Authorization
The preferred method to receive your financial aid refund is direct deposit to your checking account.
If you do not sign up for direct deposit, your refund check will be mailed to you.

You can pay online by going to your Goldlink account or by using the ePay option in the mobile app.
IMPORTANT - Effective Fall 2017 all debit and credit card payments must be made using Goldlink or the ePay option in the mobile app. No debit or credit card payments will be accepted at the Bursar’s cashier window. A 2.85% ($3 minimum charge) service fee will be assessed on all debit and credit card payments.
On your Goldlink, you can give family members the ability to pay on your account by setting up an Authorized User.
If you are receiving Veteran's Benefits, you must provide a Veteran Deferment to the Bursar's Office before the fee payment deadline to avoid your classes being dropped. Please note: being dropped from your classes will affect your housing and meal plan status.
