Tuition

In the tables below you'll find current tuition charges and fees* by degree type. The cost per credit reflects courses taken within the School of Continuing Studies and does not reflect the cost per credit at other schools within Georgetown University. 

Fees include a one-time transcript fee for all students. A Georgetown University Health Insurance charge is assessed for students taking 8+ credit hours at the graduate level or 9+ hours at the undergraduate level. If you have your own outside insurance plan, you may qualify for a waiver of the Georgetown Health Insurance plan.

In addition to tuition and fees, the Office of Student Financial Services has determined the average Cost-of-Attendance Budget for full-time Liberal Studies and Professional Studies students. The average Cost-of-Attendance reflects estimated costs, including living expenses (rent, food, personal expenses), books, and travel for full-time students.

*Please note: Tuition is subject to change and may vary by course of study. SCS strictly adheres to the deadlines and policies of the University described under Tuition, Fees, and Refunds for undergraduate and graduate students. Students should refer to the SCS Academic Calendar for appropriate refund deadlines. All refund requests are handled through the Office of Billing and Payment Services.

Georgetown University reserves the right to cancel any courses without prior notification; however, every effort will be made to provide information on cancellations in a timely manner. In the event of cancellation, Georgetown University will refund tuition charges accordingly.
