Refunds for dropped courses, meal plans and housing (For students not receiving financial aid)
If you dropped or changed classes during the drop/add period, canceled or changed your meal plan, canceled your housing, and you are due a refund, please contact the Bursar's Office in Aycock Hall via email at firstname.lastname@example.org to determine your anticipated refund date. There will be no refund after the end of the drop/add period unless the course meets for the first time after drop/add period.
Withdrawal from the University
If you decide not to attend UWG for a semester for which you have registered and have paid your tuition/fees, you must drop or withdraw from all of your courses on BANWEB. If you need additional assistance go the Enrollment Services Center in Parker Hall. After your withdrawal has been processed, you may contact the Bursar's Office via email at email@example.com to determine your anticipated refund date.
Refund of Fees and Charges for COMPLETE Withdrawal from the University
Refunds will be based on a proportional percentage determined by the number of calendar days in the Semester that the student completed along with the total number of calendar days in a 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.
Financial Aid Recipients who decide not to attend and have financial aid which covers all or a part of their bill will be obligated to repay the financial aid award if they do not withdraw from the University with the Registrar’s Office or if they do not withdraw during the 100% withdrawal period.

In order to meet Federal Regulations all refunds will be credited back to Federal Title IV programs, State programs, Private and Institutional programs in the following order: Direct Student Loan, Federal Perkins Loan, Direct Plus Loan, Federal Pell Grant, Federal SEOG, other Title IV assistance, State Programs, and Private/Institutional Programs. Any refund remaining after these programs have been satisfied will go to the student.
