Tuition and Fee Refunds

Regulations of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia provide for tuition and mandatory fee refunds when formal withdrawal from the Institution is approved within a designated period following scheduled registration.

The refund percentage that a student receives is a calculation of the time remaining in the semester up through 60% of the semester; once 60% of a semester has expired, there is no refund for a withdrawal from school. The full term semester dates are used for the tuition refund calculation. The refund calculation is based on days enrolled in the semester divided by number of calendar days in the semester, including weekends and holidays but excluding breaks of five or more consecutive days. For example, if a semester has 112 days, and a student withdraws on day 49 of that semester, 43.8% of that semester has expired (49 days divided by 112 days). The student is eligible for a refund of 56.2% (100 percent minus 43.8 percent). For students receiving financial aid, please refer to section "Refunds for a Student Receiving Federal Title IV Financial Assistance".

Refunds due to formal withdrawal from school are not made after the mid-point in the semester.

Refunds are not made for classes dropped after the Drop/Add period. Additional fees due for certain PE classes (i.e.; scuba diving, golf) and for certain courses (i.e.; art, biology, chemistry, geography and geology, nutrition and food science, physics, public health, student teaching, and theater) are not refundable after Drop/Add. A refund of all semester tuition and other mandatory fees is made in the event of death of a student any time during an academic semester.
