Confirmation of Registration and Payment of Fees

East Tennessee State University does not send bills to students for their tuition and fees. The university has taken this step in order to increase operating efficiencies by making full use of available technology. Students make many changes during registration that affect tuition and fees . Often students add dormitory assignments and meal plans that affect their account balance. The university believes the best way for students to know their current financial obligation for the term is by viewing their account through GoldLink Online.

Students who need a printed copy of their account statement may print a statement from GoldLink Online after they have completed their registration.

What is Confirmation of Registration?
Confirmation of registration is the process of confirming your interest to attend the classes for which you enrolled and/or giving ETSU permission to apply any financial aid resources toward the payment of your fees.  Students may begin fee payment/confirmation of registration after registration for classes.  Tuition and fees are subject to change by the Tennessee Board of Regents.

Who must Confirm Registration?
1.  All students planning to attend classes at ETSU must pay fees or confirm registration.
2. Students who have loans, grants, scholarships, state or federal vocational rehabilitation, or any other type of financial aid covering all fees must confirm registration on or before the due date for the term (see Pay Fees/Confirm Registration below).
