Refunds for Students with Financial Aid

For students withdrawing from school, a calculation is made on any financial aid received to determine whether a student who completely withdraws during a term has "earned" the monies disbursed. Students "earn" their aid based on the period of time they were enrolled. During the first 60 percent of the term, a student earns financial aid funds in direct proportion to the length of time the student was enrolled. Beyond the 60 percentage point, all aid is considered earned. The responsibility to repay "unearned" aid is shared by the Institute and the student in proportion to the aid each is assumed to possess. The most current refund schedule can be found at

If a student intends to withdraw from Georgia Tech, it is the student's responsibility to formally withdraw by following the Withdrawal From School Procedures on the Registrar's website.
