If an account is past due as outlined in the published payment schedule or approved extended payment plan, then GA reserves the right to: deny admission to classes, withhold grades, transcripts, graduation privileges and official school documentation until all outstanding payments have been paid. GA may withhold offering enrollment contracts or may rescind an enrollment contract for the next academic year to families with overdue accounts.

 

Conditions of attendance
