Bursar is a Latin word that means “keeper of the purse”. As such, we are responsible for the safeguard of the financial operations of the law school. In addition to the general cashiering operations, this office processes and receives payments on the students’ account, is responsible for the disbursement of financial aid to the student’s account and distributes the remainder of financial aid to the student. This office is also responsible for the control, collection and maintenance of records concerning monies due to the law school.

It is the mission of the Office of The Bursar to provide the most professional, responsive and efficient customer service to the students of Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School. The Bursar’s Office is committed to making its web site accessible to all users and we welcome any comments or suggestions for improvements. All forms for the Bursar’s office may be found on the institutional forms page.
