  • 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.
