Penalties and Past Due Accounts

Failure to pay, or make adequate payment arrangements, by a due date authorizes Georgetown to assess penalties and service charges to your student account. Service charges are assessed on a monthly basis equal to 1.75% of the overdue amount. Furthermore, students with an outstanding account balance (for any reason) may be prevented from registering for subsequent semesters by application of a financial hold.

If for any reason you leave the University (e.g. withdrawal, leave of absence, transfer) and there is an unpaid balance on your account, a final billing notice will be provided, and if unpaid, will result in the referral of your account to a collection agency.
