  • Technology Fee: $107 USD
  • Special Institution Fee: $172 USD

Non-Chinese students are required to have a GT designated medical, evacuation, and repatriation insurance policy for the semester(s) that they are in China. Note that the cost of insurance is in addition to the above GT-Shenzhen tuition and fees. The GT-Shenzhen program will order the insurance for non-Chinese students before the start of the semester and bill the students’ account for the cost of the premium from the insurance company. Students will pay this insurance fee via their student account as usual.

The tuition and fees must be paid by the payment deadline for each semester indicated on the GT Bursar Calendar. Various payment options are available. The recommended payment option for US students is WebCheck (no fee). If a non-US student has a friend/family who has a US bank account and is willing to pay to the GT Bursar on behalf of the student, WebCheck is also the recommended option; otherwise the recommended payment option for non-US students is wire transfer (the fee varies depending on the bank that you use) or credit card (with 2.75% fee).

Unless you can pay by WebCheck, credit card is preferred since any payment is posted immediately to your account. Wire transfers are labor-intensive to process and can take a week to post to your account.

Students may use Flywire, which has excellent foreign exchange rates using most international currency and saving a significant amount of money as compared to a traditional bank wire transfer.

For those choosing to pay to GT Bursar by wire transfer (traditional), the following is information needed to execute the wire transfer:

Receiving Bank: Bank of America
Bank ABA Routing Number: 026-009593
Bank Account Number: 003282509571
SWIFT CODE (International Students): BOFAUS3N
Bank Address: 600 Peachtree St. NE, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA

Tel: +1 (404) 894-4618

Please be advised that anyone outside the U.S. can use either the SWIFT Code or the ABA Routing Number. Please request that the bank executing your wire transfer include your GT Student Identification Number (GTID) FIRST in the “wire special instructions/reference field” as this information is critical for timely application of payment. Space permitting, please include also your first and last name.

Some foreign banks have to go through a correspondent or intermediary bank to wire transfer money to a US bank. The correspondent/intermediary bank deducts a fee (typically $15 to $18 per transaction) from the wire transfer amount. This is part of the fee that the sender (not the receiver) should pay. Please inquire with your bank the fee that the correspondent/intermediary bank will charge and add that to the wire transfer amount. This will ensure that when we receive the wire transfer, the amount will be sufficient to cover your tuition & fees. Note this is in addition to the fee that your bank charges you to send out the wire.

Following the execution of the transfer, please send one email to Gabrielle Lolley and cc: Tirrell Johnson and Chelcea Warren. Please include name of the sender, GTID, amount, and indicate that the money is for GT-Shenzhen tuition & fees. All inquiries regarding the receipt of your wire should be sent to Chelcea Warren.
