Main Campus: First Session & Second Session {Excludes SCS}



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; and  establishes University policy for course withdrawal published in GU’s Undergraduate Bulletin or Graduate Bulletin, or other relevant bulletins.  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 or advisor, according to periods and percentages listed below. 

Half-Term Sessions

Classes that are in the  Main First Session (in the first half term) and Main Second Session (for the second half term)  meet for  about 7.5  weeks.  Due to the condense version, these courses have a different withdraw / 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.
