Title: Graduate Tuition Charges and Billing for Fall 2020

Dear Georgetown Students,

Following the announcements from university leaders about the operating status for the fall 2020 semester, we are writing to share our plans for tuition assessment and billing.

We plan to start posting tuition to your student account for Fall 2020 later today. For most students, this will be based on actual course registrations, but for some, we will assess tuition based on your program of study’s expectation of course load. Our website includes details about current tuition rates for all programs of study.

As you know, some or all instruction for academic year 2020-21 may be delivered virtually. Though the university’s operating status is subject to change based on public health conditions and the prioritization of the health and safety of our community, faculty have worked to ensure that all courses can be taught both in person and remotely. Because this flexibility has been built into the curriculum, tuition and mandatory fees will not be reduced or subject to refunds even if there is a change in the method of instruction during the academic year. Tuition is refundable in the case of withdrawal based on the tuition refund schedule.

Tomorrow, July 22, we will issue billing statements that will include not only tuition charges, but also your expected financial aid, additional charges related to your program for the fall semester, and your total amount due.

Our tuition due date for students in all programs is Friday, August 21. Some new students may have an earlier due date, set by their admissions office, which will be reflected on their billing statement. We encourage all students and families to review our three payment plan options, which can help spread the amount due over the semester.

We are excited for the coming Fall 2020 semester even in the midst of these uncertain and challenging times. We recognize the pandemic has impacted all of us in profound and unexpected ways, and we remain committed to supporting our community through this crisis. Please do not hesitate to contact us at 202-687-7100 or if you have any questions or concerns.
