Expenses and Financial Assistance

I. Tuition & Other Expenses

Georgetown University specifically reserves the right to increase tuition and other fees without prior notice should conditions be such that an increase is warranted.

By the act of registration, class attendance, or participation in other activities associated with  enrollment at Georgetown, the student accepts financial responsibility for charges assessed to  his/her student account. This financial responsibility is not relieved until payment has actually  been made for any charges incurred.
