Refunds

Fee Refunds

The University System of Georgia Board of Regents sets the refund policy of the College of Coastal Georgia. The policy changed Fall 2000 due to new federal regulations. Under this revised policy, the student's portion of repayment for aid received may increase substantially.

The refund amount for students withdrawing from the institution 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 the 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 equals 60%. Students who withdraw from the institution 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. (BR Minutes, 1979-80, p.61; 1986-87, pp.24-25, 1995, p. 246).
