The refund amount for students who formally withdraw from the Institution shall be based on a pro rata percentage determined by the number of calendar days in the semester that the student completed along with the total number of calendar days in the semester. The unearned portion shall be refunded up to the 60% point in time. Students who withdraw after the 60% point in time are not entitled to a refund of charges. All refunds will be issued through the HigherOne Account.
When a student withdraws from school during the semester, the damage deposit is refunded on the same basis as the matriculation refund. If a student leaves the residence hall and does not withdraw from school, he/she is still held responsible for the remainder of the yearly room charge. Students desiring to be considered for a housing release must apply at the Department of Housing and Residence Life.
If a student withdraws during a semester, refund of board charges is made on a prorated basis, determined by the date of official withdrawal.
A refund of all non-resident fees, matriculation fees, and other required fees shall be made in the event of the death of a student at any time during an academic semester.
Students who are members of the Georgia National Guard or other reserve components of the Armed Forces who receive emergency orders to active military duty are entitled to a full refund of matriculation fees paid for that semester, in accordance with guidelines previously listed.
For Financial Aid recipients, in order to meet Federal regulations, all refunds are credited back to the Federal Title IV programs, state programs, private, and institutional programs in the following order: Direct Stafford Loans, Federal Perkins Loans, Direct PLUS Loans, Federal Pell Grants, Federal SEOG, and other Title IV assistance, state, private, or institutional aid. Any refund remaining after these programs have been reimbursed goes to the student. All refunds will be issued via the student's UWG HigherOne Account card.
