Students registered for 12 credit hours or more in a given term will be considered to be full-time students, and will be charged the full time rate for a registration of 12-20 credit hours. Beyond 20 credit hours, each additional credit hour for which the student is registered will result in an additional charge at the part-time rate, e.g.: a student registered for 20 credit hours will be charged $27,720.00, whereas a student registered for 21 hours will be charged $27,720.00 + $2,310.00. Students wishing to register for less than a full-time course load must get approval from their dean’s office.

One-Time Fees

Certain fees are charged to the student once at the beginning of his or her studies at Georgetown. These include the orientation and transcript fees. The one-time transcript fee will ensure that the student has access to copies of his or her official transcript for life.

Yates Field House Membership

Access to Yates Field House is now included in the cost of tuition for any part-time or full-time active, degree-seeking student. Part-time students in a non-degree seeking program/certificate will need to “opt-in” to the Yates Access Fee by visiting Yates Field House

Student Activities Fee

Undergraduate degree-seeking students are assessed this fee each semester for which they are enrolled. The proceeds from this fee fund various activities throughout the year, including concerts, lectures, performances, discussion groups, recreational opportunities, and other co-curricular programs.

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.

Course Fees

Certain language and science courses have a lab or technology component. Those students registered for lab courses will be charged, in addition to regular tuition, the relevant fee. These fees will be assessed as soon as the student’s registration request has been processed which, during the registration period at the beginning of each semester, will occur within 24 hours. Science lab fees are assessed per laboratory course for which the student is registered. A student will be assessed the language technology fee once per term, regardless of the number of language courses for which the student is registered.

Language Technology Fee

The language technology fee contributes to the operation of Georgetown’s Language Learning Technology Center, which supports faculty teaching and students learning a foreign language at Georgetown. The center has a walk-in lab where students can get access to online materials, view foreign language broadcasts and films, work on projects individually or collaboratively, and get help with the technologies and resources used in their language courses. The center also includes two computer teaching labs used by the different language programs at the university. The center staff prepares learning materials for online access (e. g. through Sharestream or Panopto) and helps faculty with online course materials and teaching tools (e. g. in Canvas). The staff also consults with faculty and students on a range of language learning technologies used at Georgetown, implemented at the lab, online, or in other teaching spaces. For questions about Georgetown’s Language Learning Technology Center, please contact Peter Janssens, Ph.D. at paj6@georgetown.edu or 202-687-5766.

Materials Fees

Certain programs assess a fee to cover required materials for the fine arts, performing arts and other courses. The amount of this fee can vary; if you have been assessed such a fee, contact your program administrator for more information, and can vary significantly depending on the materials required.

Payment Plans

Any 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. Find 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 1.75% 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

Undergraduate students and their authorized users may pay online via an electronic check at MyAccess. Students may also pay via paper check, cash, money order, credit card, or wire transfer. Find more detailed information regarding payments.

Memo Items

Memo items reflect anticipated payments and/or scholarships which have yet to be received by the University. 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 the generation of an official transcript. The hold will remain in place until the outstanding balance has been resolved. For 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.

All Access Plans: All access meal plans entitle the student to an unlimited number of meals for the number of days indicated in the plan description.  The All Access 7 meal plan is the default plan and automatically assigned to freshman and sophomores living on campus. First and second year undergraduates living on campus must enroll in an all access plan, the 18 weekly meal plan or the 14 weekly meal plan, and second year undergraduates have the option to enroll in the 12 weekly meal plan.

Weekly Plans: Each of the three weekly meal plans entitle the student to the stated number of meals per week.  The 18 weekly meal plan and the 14 weekly meal plan are available to all classes while the 12 weekly meal plan is not available to freshmen.

Flex Dollars: Dining Plans that include Flex dollars will be credited to the student’s GOCard for use at various on-campus dining facilities. For a list of on-campus dining facilities that accept Flex dollars, visit Hoya Eats. It is important to remember that flex dollars are not refundable, or exchangeable, at all. Flex dollars must be used within each semester, and do not roll over between semesters.

Refunds/Changes: Dining Plan participants will be allowed to change or cancel their plan within the first two weeks of each semester (as outlined in the Dining Plan Policies for Georgetown).  All refunds and changes are subject to a pro-rated charge, which is based on the number of days enrolled in the weekly meal plan, or the amount of meals used in the block plan.

How does the pro-rated refund/change get calculated? For weekly meal plans, there will be a charge for the number of days enrolled in the plan that is being terminated, and a credit for the number of days elapsed before enrolling in the new plan. For Block Plans, there will be a charge for the meals eaten in the Block Plan being terminated. If you are enrolling in a Block Plan after the beginning of a semester, you will be charged for the full set of meals in the Block Plan.  

Note that if a student is enrolled in a plan in the fall term, he or she will be automatically enrolled in the same plan for the spring term, with an option to submit a change online via MyAccess during the first two weeks of the semester.

If you withdraw from the University before the end of the semester (be it for a leave of absence, medical leave or any other reason) please be aware that the meal or block plan for which you are enrolled will not be automatically removed from your account. It is your responsibility to review your account at: myaccess.georgetown.edu
