Best in Class, a loan forgiveness program sponsored by The Student Loan People, was eliminated in May 2008. However, there are federal loan forgiveness programs. For more information, go to http://studentaid.ed.gov/ LoanForgivenessForTeachers
Students are required to inform Georgetown College of other aid such as school district reimbursements they are receiving. We are required to consider these payments when determining how much aid a student can receive.

As a private, faith-based institution, Georgetown College receives no support through taxes or public revenue. In fact, tuition covers only a part of the actual expenses involved. Support from the endowment, gifts and grants from alumni, friends of the college, and organizations total over 35% of the actual cost of each studentâ€™s education, helping to keep direct costs as low as possible. The College administers an extensive financial assistance program; no prospective student should overlook Georgetown College for purely financial reasons until investigating fully the amount and types of aid available

It is the responsibility of each student to access their bill at the website https://my.georgetowncollege.edu/ics. The Business Office sends all billing information by email to each studentâ€™s college email address. No paper bills are sent. If the student makes changes to their registration and the billed amount changes, a corrected e-bill may not be received prior to the due date. If the student registers late, a bill may not be received prior to the due date. If the student has not received a bill prior to the payment deadline, it is the studentsâ€™ responsibility to contact the Business Office to arrange payment. Student billing information is always available on my.georgetowncollege.edu.
Registration is complete upon receipt of either payment in full to the Business Office or partial payment and completion of the Deferred Payment Agreement. The Deferred Payment form is on the downloadable form section of the â€śfinancesâ€ť tab on my.georgetowncollege.edu. The student should print the form, sign it, and mail it to Georgetown College Student Accounts, 400 East College Street, Georgetown, KY 40324. Students need to complete financial clearance before class begins. To receive financial clearance for classes, students must confirm registration by paying charges in full or by making arrangements to pay the bill in installments. Both methods require the student to contact the Business Office. If registration is not confirmed by the student by Friday of the second week of class, registration will be cancelled and the student will be billed drop charges plus tuition and fees subject to the refund schedule. All student accounts should be paid in full by the end of each semester.
There is a Deferred Payment Agreement plan available by semester for graduate schoolÂ tuition. Initial billing will be e-mailed to students approximately three weeks before the start of class. Registration can be viewed on my.georgetowncollege.edu. Deferred paymentÂ forms are available for downloading, and electronic payment can be made on my.georgetowncollege.edu.
Payments of at least 1/4 of the total charges for the semester will be made over
four consecutive months for fall and spring. For summer sessions, payments of at least 1/3 of the total charges for the summer will be made over three consecutive months. Signed Deferred Payment Agreement Form and payment is due by the first day of class.
Any student with a past due account will not be permitted to register, nor will that student be able to receive a transcript or a diploma until the account is paid in full. At the end of each semester, the student with an open account assumes collection and legal fees, if any.
A service charge of 1% will be charged each month on student accounts.
Students who have not received financial clearance by the deadline will be dropped from all classes. In addition to the $20 drop fees, students will be billed according to the refund schedule. Please refer to the refund schedule on the Business Office website. Click on the link for the semester in which you are enrolled. If a student is dropped for nonpayment and wishes to make the payment to be reinstated in the class, the reinstatement fee will be $50.
Reductions of charges billed will be made in the following circumstances:
Students who withdraw during the first six weeks of classes may be eligible for a partial reduction in billed charges for tuition and fees as determined by the schedule below. The withdrawal process is completed when the student submits the withdrawal card to the Graduate office and signs a request for any applicable refund.
During spring or fall semester, students withdrawing due to reasons subject to administrative review and approval will be billed on a pro-rata basis for tuition and fees as follows:
IMPORTANT NOTE: During summer mini terms, students withdrawing due to reasons subject to administrative review and approval will have tuition charges refunded on a pro-rata basis through 40% of the term. The class days and dates for this refund schedule are determined by the Business Office. The refund period is significantly different for summer. Students are advised to discuss drops or withdrawals with the Business Office and the Office of Financial Planning prior to making a decision.
