In order to complete several of the steps in the CAM, you will need to access your Student Banner account. 

If you have a problem with your Banner account, please contact the IT Service Desk at 706-864-1922.


Step 1: Pay Room Deposit and FROG Week Fee

Paying the Room Deposit

If you plan to become a Cadet, do NOT pay the $200 confirmation deposit required for Undergraduate Students. The $250 Room Deposit doubles as the confirmation payment for Cadets. If you have paid the $200 Confirmation Deposit please contact our office.

The Room Deposit may be paid online or by mailing a check.

To pay the deposit online follow these steps:

  • Log into Banner using the information that you received from Cadet Admissions
  • Select “Student”
  • Select “Nighthawk Registration”
  • Select “Student Invoice”
  • Select “Continue”
  • Select “Deposits” from the black menu bar
  • Select the term that you will be starting at North Georgia and then click “Select”
  • Select the “Cadet Deposit” then click “Select”
  • Verify deposit name and the $250.00 dollar amount
  • Select your payment method:
    • For Credit Card payments (additional 2.85% will be added for credit card transactions): Select “Credit Card via Paypath
    • For webCheck payments (no additional charge): Select “New Electronic Check
  • Once payment method selected, click “Select” and follow the instructions

To pay the deposit by check, please please make the check payable to UNG and put your first and last name and Student ID on the memo line. Mail the check to:

FROG Week Fees

This payment covers your room and board for FROG Week and must be paid separately from other fees. FROG Week Fee must be paid prior to the beginning of FROG Week.

  • FROG Week Fee: $150.00

  • Haircut - $10.00 bill (exact change, cash only)
  • Do not bring extra money or valuables to FROG Week.

Step 2: Email Account and Information Technology

You can access your student account information by the following:

Note: If you have IT related questions or concerns, you may contact the IT Service Desk at (706) 864-1922, by email at, or stop by their office in the Library Technology Center, Room 164.

Step 3: Financial Assistance

Applying for the FAFSA

New financial aid information is updated at the beginning of March each year for the following academic year. Apply for the Free Application for Financial Aid (FAFSA):

  • Visit Financial Aid Website
  • On the left under Financial Aid, Select “Paying for College”
  • Select “Federal Aid”
  • Follow the Steps in the Middle of the Screen

Note: All financial aid correspondence is done through your UNG email account.       

Check Your Financial Aid Status

Once you have applied for financial aid by filling out the Free Application for Financial Aid (FAFSA), you can check your financial aid status by the following:
  • Log into your UNG Banner Web account
  • Select "Financial Aid,"
  • Select "Financial Aid Status".

Cadets Receiving Financial Aid Credits

Funds will be made available in your bookstore account on day 1 of FROG Week. This includes Cadets receiving scholarship money (Army ROTC Scholarship for books or Georgia Military Scholarship for books and uniforms).

Georgia ROTC Grant and Future Officer's Grant

The General Assembly of the State of Georgia has established an ROTC grant for eligible Cadets enrolled in the Corps of Cadets at UNG. The grant is for a maximum of $750 each semester of the regular academic year (fall and spring) through your senior year. You must be a legal resident of the state of Georgia, a full-time student, be enrolled in a military science class and earn a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher. You must also be in good conduct standing with the Commandant of Cadets at the end of each semester. The grant is paid during the last week of each semester. The amount of the grant may vary due to availability of state funding. You will fill out the ROTC Grant Application during FROG Week in-processing. Each year after, you must apply for this grant with the Financial Aid Office.

If you sign a contract with the Professor of Military Science (PMS) to commission as an Army officer prior to earning 90 semester hours, you will receive the Future Officer's Grant which pays up to $2,000 per semester. To receive these funds, you must complete the Future Officers application and provide a copy of your ROTC contract to the Financial Aid Office. You cannot receive the Georgia ROTC Grant in the same semester that you receive the Future Officer’s Grant.

To see an itemized cost list, please visit our Cadet Cost webpage.

Step 4: Freshman Advance Scheduling Online Form

After you pay your room deposit you will be eligible to participate in UNG's Freshman Advance Scheduling Program.

You will be registered for 12-17 credit hours of courses that are appropriate to your major.

Most majors require completing at least 120 credit hours. This equates to an average of 15 credit hours per semester to graduate in four years, or eight semesters.

You will be able to adjust your schedule during New Student Orientation and then again during the Add/Drop period.

Note: Students must complete the Advance Scheduling Online Form before they can register for Orientation. 

Step 5: Register for New Student (NSO) or Transfer Student Orientation (TSO)

New Student Orientation (NSO) or Transfer Student Orientation (TSO) is required for all new students. Cadets will verify class registration during Orientation.

  • New Student Orientation (NSO) is for new freshmen and is a two-day, one-night event during the summer for students enrolling in the fall semester. For students enrolling in a spring or summer semester it is a one-day event.
    • Incoming Cadets who have been accepted for the fall term but cannot attend an earlier NSO session due to distance and travel expenses should sign up for the New Student Orientation scheduled for August 10. Cadets who attend this NSO will be housed in Cadet housing overnight and will transition to FROG-in-processing on the second morning.
    • Housing is NOT available for Out-of-State Cadets the night prior to Orientation.
  • Transfer Student Orientation (TSO) is a one-day event for new transfer Cadets or non-traditional Cadets enrolling in the summer, fall, or spring semester.
  • Parent and Family Orientation is a two-day, one-night orientation session that runs alongside the June, July and August New Student Orientation sessions. Students should register and pay for their orientation guests during the New Student Orientation reservation process. 

To schedule your orientation date please go to the Orientation & Transition Programs (OTP) website. You may make your reservation for whatever date over the summer you would like. Prior to attending Orientation, please select the button for Online Pre-Orientation. You will need to register for and complete Online Pre-Orientation before you attend orientation.

Note: All Cadets are required to attend NSO or TSO, however, Cadets can request an exemption to this policy due to an extenuating circumstance by completing orientation exemption form.

  • You must be prepared to pay your college bills up front. Even with Tuition Assistance (TA), you will still have to pay for your books, fees, uniforms, room, meals, and incidental expenses yourself. If you have Montgomery GI Bill® and Tuition Assistance we still recommend that you fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA. You may qualify for additional financial assistance. Please visit the financial aid portion of our website to complete a FAFSA

Going to basic/AIT in the summer or fall before enrolling in the spring?

If you're going to basic training prior to enrolling in the Spring Semester, you must do the following before you depart for training:

  1. Verify you have a valid room contract and have paid $250 deposit (must be paid before you leave).
  2. Fill out the FAFSA form before you leave for training this summer. Don't wait until you get back! Access the FAFSA and get all info you need about financial aid.
  3. Complete as many steps in the Cadet Admissions Manual checklist before leaving for training. At a minimum, you must have submitted final high school transcripts, checked your banner account, and have set up your student e-mail account.

Note that the university closes during Winter Break; from about 20 December until the first week in January.
