Main Campus First & Second Session (Excludes SCS)

Refund and Withdrawal Schedule

Tuition and Refunds

Georgetown University’s Office of Revenue and Receivables is responsible for reporting and collecting Georgetown University tuition and fees at the direction of the University Registrar. Accordingly, the University Registrar maintains the refund schedule. 

Refund period dates and percentages are derived from GU Main Campus Academic Calendar and University policy for course withdrawal published in GU’s Undergraduate or Graduate Bulletins, or other relevant bulletins. Classes that are in the Main First Session and Main Second Session meet for about 7.5  weeks. Due to the condense version, these courses have a different withdrawal/refund calendar and may have a different add/drop deadlines. To search for these classes go to the Schedule of Classes and search for either Main First Session or  Main Second Session under the Part of Term option.

Should a student voluntarily withdraw from courses, credit for tuition will be calculated by the date of the student’s official notice to the Dean, according to periods and percentages listed below.

Course Fees

Individual courses may have fees (ex. Lab, Materials, Travel, Performance) required for enrollment in the course. Fees are published in a course’s “Detailed Class Information” page (in the Schedule of Classes, click on highlighted course title to view course details, including any fees.)   

Course lab fees automatically are removed from a student’s account when the student officially drops the course during the semester’s registration Add/Drop period. Course fees are not refunded for courses from which a student withdraws after the semester’s Add/Drop period has ended.
