Student Refunds

Refunds and Withdrawals


Students officially withdrawing from South Georgia State College after paying fees for the term will be issued a 100% refund for tuition, mandatory fees, campus housing and meal plans, PROVIDED THE OFFICAL WITHDRAWAL OCCURS NO LATER THAN THE LAST OFFICIAL DAY OF DROP/ADD FOR REFUNDS. STUDENTS OFFICIALLY WITHDRAWING FROM ALL CLASSES AFTER THE OFFICIAL DROP/ADD DAY WILL RECEIVE A REFUND BASED UPON THE FOLLOWING BOARD OF REGENTS REFUND POLICY:

The refund amount shall be based on a pro rata percentage determined by dividing the number of calendar days in the semester that the student completed by the total calendar days in the semester. The total calendar days in a semester includes weekends, but excludes scheduled breaks of five or more days and days that a student was on an approved leave of absence. The unearned portion shall be refunded up to the point in time that the amount earned equals 60%.

Students who withdraw when the calculated percentage of completion is greater than 60% are not entitled to a refund of any portion of institutional charges.

A refund of all non-resident fees, matriculation fees, and other mandatory fees shall be made in the event of the death of a student at any time during the academic session.

Housing fees are non-refundable fees.

 It is the student's responsibility to withdraw officially in accordance with College regulations. Students receiving financial aid monies will have their refunds restored to the following programs in this precise order: outstanding balances on Federal non- subsidized loans, Federal subsidized loans, PLUS loans, Pell, SEOG, other Title IV student assistance programs (including LEAP), HOPE, private scholarships and finally, to the student.

Refunds due to the student will be issued to the student's Higher One card.

Additional information about refunds and refund policies are available, upon students' request, in the Cashier's Offices located in Engram Hall (Douglas Campus) and in the Administration Building (Waycross Campus).
