Main Campus (Excludes SCS)

Standard 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.  Standard refund periods (15 weeks classes) for Main Campus Undergraduate and Graduate students during this academic year are found below.

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

Course Fees

Individual class may have associated fees (ex. Lab, Materials, Travel, Performance). If a student is enrolled in these classes, the fee cannot be removed. 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.)   

Fees automatically are removed from a student’s account when the student officially drops the class during the semester’s registration Add/Drop period. Course fees cannot be refunded for classes from which a student withdraws after the semester’s Add/Drop period has ended.
