Paying Tuition and Fees
Tuition and fees are payable by the deadline published on the official Academic Calendar and on the Bursar's Office web page for each academic term. Registration is not complete until all charges are paid. The Institute reserves the right at any time during the semester to drop any student from classes for failure to pay his/her balance in full. In no case is a regulation waived or an exception granted because a student pleads ignorance of the regulation or asserts that he or she was not informed of it by an advisor or other authority. Students who owe the Institute money and have been placed on "Hold" because of failure to pay may have their account forwarded to a professional collection agency.
Payment may be made with cash (U.S. dollars); a check payable in U.S. currency and drawn on a financial institution located in the United States (checks must be made payable to "Georgia Institute of Technology" and have an encoded checking account number); or a cashier's check. MasterCard, American Express, and Discover (credit and debit), and WebChecks are accepted for online payments. Georgia Tech does not accept credit card payments directly for payment of tuition, fees, and room and board that appear on the student's account. Credit card payments can only be made via the Student Information System and are processed by Georgia Tech's vendor. Credit card users are charged a service fee of 2.75 percent by the vendor for this service. A fee is not charged for WebCheck transactions. Credit and debit card payments cannot be made by mail, phone, fax, or in person.
Tuition and Fee Rates
The tuition and fees listed are estimates and are subject to change. These amounts should be used only as a planning guide for future payments. Tuition charges can vary based on state residency status and degree program of study. Residency status is determined by the Office of Admission at the time of acceptance. Students are either classified as a resident or nonresident of Georgia for tuition purposes in accordance with the regulations of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia.
