Refunds are not processed for a reduction in class load after the drop/add period has ended.
Excess Financial Aid Refunds
New students who complete course registration will have a refund selection kit sent to the mailing address on file. Visit www.fvsu.edu/student-refunds for more information about refund options.
Refunds are disbursed bi-weekly AFTER the first initial refund of the term. To receive a refund for the current semester, the following requirements must be satisfied:
- You must be enrolled in classes for this semester.
- All tuition, fees and any fines must be paid on your account.
- A credit balance must remain after all tuition, fees and fines have been paid.
Regulations of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia provide for tuition and mandatory fee refunds when formal withdrawal from the institution is approved within a designated period following registration.
The refund percentage that a student receives is a calculation of the time remaining in the semester up through 60% of the semester. Once 60% of the semester has expired, there is no refund for a withdrawal from the institution. The refund calculation is based on days enrolled in the semester divided by the number of calendar days in the semester including weekends and holidays, but excluding breaks of five(5) or more consecutive days.
A refund of all semester tuition and other mandatory fees is made in the event of death of a student any time during an academic semester. (BR Minutes, 1979-80, p. 61; 1986-87. pp. 24-25; 1995, 6. 246).
