Student Health Insurance: Georgetown University requires that all full-time students must have health insurance. If a student is not already enrolled in an insurance program, he or she will be required to accept the plan offered by Georgetown. All undergraduate students taking 9 or more hours will be assessed the insurance fee once per academic year, typically in the fall term. If a student does not require the student health plan due to prior enrollment in another program, the fee can be waived online via Student Health Services by completing the waiver survey. Please allow up to 10 business days for the waiver credit to post to the account. For more information, visit the website for Student Health Insurance.

Tuition Equalization FeePart time law students wishing to transfer to full-time status must pay a fee to bring the total cost of tuition for the three-year program in line with that of full-time students. This fee is charged once. Payment of this fee entitles the student to take up to 11 credits in Georgetown Law's summer programs in D.C. or London without having to pay any additional summer tuition.

Payment PlansAny student with an account balance greater than or equal to $2,000.00 is eligible to enroll in a monthly payment plan. Students wishing to enroll in one of the interest-bearing plans (i.e., the 33% or 20% plan) after the end of the semester's add/drop period but prior the last day of plan enrollment will be required to pay a $60 fee.

Late Registration and Outstanding Balance Service Charge: Any student with an outstanding balance as of the end of the add/drop period is subject to a flat $60.00 fee, assessed by the Registrar. At the end of each month following the start of classes, any outstanding balance will be subject to a service charge equal to 1.75% of the balance in question.

Returned Check Fee: Any paper or electronic check which is returned for any reason will result in an $80.00 charge.

Payment Options: Law students may pay online via an electronic check at MyAccess. Students may also pay via paper check, cash, money order, credit card, or wire transfer. For more information on payment options, click here.

Memo Items: Financial aid which has been approved but not yet disbursed will appear on the student's account as a memo item. Memo items do not reduce the account balance, but do protect the student from being assessed late payment penalties against that portion of their balance covered by the memo. Upon receipt of the funds connected with the memo item, the memo will be transformed into an actual credit, reducing the account balance and potentially making the student eligible for a refund. Students should ensure that all of the requirements for disbursement have been met in order to receive these funds in a timely fashion. Visit the website of Georgetown Law School's Office of Financial Aid  for more information on financial aid.

Delinquent Accounts: Any student who becomes inactive - whether by withdrawal, leave of absence, failure to register, or graduation - and has an outstanding balance will be sent a final bill. If the account is not settled in full within 30 days of the final bill, the account will be assessed a final month's service charge and referred to a collection agency. A collection agency fee of up to one-third of the value of the debt will be assessed to the account.
