State of Georgia Refund Policy
An academic quarter is 10 weeks in length and may consist of two five-week sessions. In the event that a student withdraws or is dismissed from all classes during the quarter, the date from which tuition adjustments will be calculated is the last date of attendance. Please note that refunds are calculated based on the smallest distinct segment of the academic program. For example, for students who withdraw or are dismissed from all classes during the quarter in which a 10-week course(s) are taken, the percentages of completion will be applied to the 10-week quarter. For students who withdraw or are dismissed from all classes during the quarter in which a 5-week course(s) are taken, the percentages of completion will be applied to the 5-week session.
Tuition and fees will be adjusted according to the following schedule:
- During the first seven calendar days*, the University will refund 100% of the tuition and fees.
- Refunds are determined based on the proration of tuition and percentage of the smallest distinct segment of the academic program at withdrawal, up to 50% of the quarter or 5-week session.
- There will be no refund after a student has completed more than 50% of the quarter or 5-week session.
* This applies to a new student’s right to cancel in the first week of their program quarter of attendance only.
Please note that there is no administrative fee for withdrawal. Lastly, students are entitled to the most favorable refund policy under state, federal or institutional policy.
