Tuition and 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.

Students must take action to drop or withdraw from classes in order to be eligible for a tuition refund according to the refund schedule (see the Expenses and Financial Assistance – Refunds section) applicable to their program of study. Students are responsible for receipt and review of their billing statements, and ensuring that their balance is settled in full by the due-date specified on such statements. Failure to do so may subject the account to late payment penalties. In the event that Georgetown University deems it necessary to utilize the services of a third-party collection agency in order to collect on a delinquent debt, the student will be responsible for paying the fees of such services (see Office of Revenue and Receivables Policies).
