School of Continuing Studies

The tuition and fee schedule below reflects one component of a student’s Cost of Attendance (COA). Each student’s COA is unique to their program of study and includes the following elements: Tuition and Fees, Housing, Food, Books and Supplies, Transportation, Personal Expenses, and Loan Fees. The COA reflects the full cost for a student to attend the university and includes both direct expenses such as tuition and fees, and indirect expenses such as transportation and personal expenses. Therefore, the total cost of attendance may be slightly different than the actual cost incurred by any individual student. For more information on the Cost of Attendance for this program, please refer to the Office of Student Financial Services website.

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions regarding Georgetown’s tuition rate-setting procedures are available in this FAQ sheet.

Graduate Student Activity Fee

This fee serves to fund the activities of the Graduate Student Organization. Though considered a mandatory fee, the GSO reserves the right to waive this fee for any student at its discretion. Any questions concerning this fee should be directed to graduateactivityfee@georgetown.edu.

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 graduate students taking 8 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.

Payment Plans

Any student with an account balance greater than or equal to $500.00 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. For more information on payment plans.

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 $100.00 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 1.50% 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

Any student attending courses through the School of Continuing Studies may pay online via electronic check at MyAccess. Other options include paper check, cash, money order, credit card, or wire transfer. For more detailed information regarding payments.

Memo Items

Memo items reflect estimated payments and/or scholarships which have yet to credit to the student’s account. 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. Note that prior to the start of an academic term, student loans will also appear as memo items. 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 the Office of Student Financial Services for more information on financial aid.

Financial Holds

Any student for whom there remains an outstanding balance prior to the start of pre-registration for the next semester will have a financial hold placed on his or her account. This hold will prevent registration for future terms, will prevent graduation, and will prohibit the student from requesting an official transcript. The hold will remain in place until the outstanding balance has been resolved. Find more information on financial holds.

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.
