- Add/Drop Information
- Apply Credit toward a Graduate Degree
Should a visiting student enter a graduate degree program at Georgetown University after completion of Summer Sessions at Georgetown, courses taken in the Summer Sessions do not automatically apply toward a degree. However, they may be included for degree credit with the approval of the student's academic department and the Graduate School. Acceptance into and completion of graduate-level coursework in the Summer Sessions does not guarantee or confer acceptance into any graduate program at the University.

- Disability Services
Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Academic Resource Center assesses accommodations for students with disabilities based on documentation from a medical professional. Review of documentation may take 3-4 weeks; hence, students should submit documents to the Academic Resource Center in a timely manner, preferably prior to the start of a program or semester. As part of the interactive process, accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis following review of the medical documentation and a meeting with an Academic Resource Center administrator.
It is the responsibility of the student seeking accommodations to meet with the assigned Academic Resource Center administrator within the first few weeks of the semester or program. During the meeting with the administrator, the student will receive accommodation letters for their instructors and directions of how to discuss the implementation of accommodations with their instructors. Accommodations are not retroactive; students must make arrangements to meet with their Academic Resource Center advisor and professors at the start of each semester to discuss implementation of accommodations.
Please visit the ARC's documentation guidelines and accommodation process website for a step-by-step guide on requesting an accommodation. Questions regarding the accommodation process or the documentation guidelines, please contact the School of Continuing Studies’ Academic Resource Center at email@example.com or 202-784-7366.
