Testing at New Student Orientation
Withdrawing from New Student Orientation
If students meet the three day withdrawal deadline, the refund will be credited to their student account. The money will not be credited directly back to a credit card or bank account. This refund will remain on students' accounts and be applied to any outstanding fees when tuition and fees are due each enrollment cycle. If tuition and fees are covered completely by other funds, the orientation refund will be mailed to the address on students' files when Student Accounts distributes refund checks each enrollment cycle. If a student withdraws from orientation and does not attend Georgia State University, the refund will be mailed to the student's address on file when Student Accounts distributes refund checks each enrollment cycle.
If a student withdraws or cancels less than three full business days prior to the scheduled orientation date, there is no refund. There are no partial refunds. If a student registers for another day, he or she will need to pay the full registration fee again.
