Main Campus


Georgetown University’s Office of Billing and Payment Services 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 Dean, according to periods and percentages listed below.
