On this page, you will find helpful information and links about what you need to know as a newly enrolled student. Please follow the checklist below to ensure that you have completed all of the required steps. We look forward to having you join us in Washington, D.C., this summer!


  1. Obtain your Georgetown University credentials (NetID and password). Your NetID, University ID number (GUID), and temporary password will be included in your enrollment decision letter, located within your online account.
  2. Register for your summer course(s). Follow the instructions listed below to register for courses:
    1. Complete the New Incoming First Year and Transfer Students Summer Sessions Request Form on the Enroll page (incoming and transfer students only)
    2. Log in to MyAccess
    3. Under the “Student Services” tab, select “Registration”
    4. Click “Select Term”
    5. Using the drop-down box, select the summer term you would like to register for and hit “Submit”
    6. Enter the course reference number (CRN) into one of the boxes and hit “Submit” (Note: The CRN is the five-digit number next to the course title on the schedule of classes; you may enter multiple CRNs at once or you may enter them one at a time)
    7. If there is space available in the class or classes you have selected, you will be registered; if there is no more space available or if there are any restrictions on the class that would prevent you from registering, you will receive an error message and will not be registered
    8. If you do not know what class or classes you want to take, you may search by selecting “Search Classes,” which brings you to the online schedule of classes for review (Note: You will need to return to the registration page and enter the CRN to register for a class)
    9. If you receive an error message when you attempt to log in and register for classes, it is likely that your enrollment confirmation has not been processed yet. Please allow two to three business days for this process to be completed.
  3. Apply for a summer scholarship for visiting students. All visiting students are welcome to apply for our summer scholarships by completing the Partial Tuition Scholarship Application for Visiting Students. We review applications after an applicant is admitted and scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. The typical scholarship award is one credit for every three credits taken.
  4. Sign up for HOYAlert. HOYAlert is the University’s emergency notification system. You can sign up for this on the University Safety and Emergency Preparedness website.
  5. Obtain your GOCard. All students must have a Georgetown GOCard to serve as their official student identification. The GOCard is required when entering the library or boarding a Georgetown University Transportation Shuttle and also grants you access to academic buildings, computer labs, and other campus facilities. Visit the GOCard website for information on how to obtain your GOCard and the many ways in which you can use your GOCard on and off campus.
  6. Coordinate your housing and meal plan. Summer Sessions students are not required to live on campus, but on-campus housing is available through the Summer Housing Office. If you choose to live on campus, you may also be interested in purchasing a meal plan through Dining Services. Once you know your summer address, please remember to update your local mailing address in MyAccess.
  7. Submit your immunization forms to the Student Health Center. If you are under the age of 26 at the time of your registration, you must submit proof of immunization. Please complete the Georgetown University Immunization Certificate and return it to the Student Health Center.
  8. Ensure your immigration documentation is in order. If you are not a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident, please complete all required steps for your immigration documentation as quickly as possible. This information is not applicable to U.S. citizens.
  9. Check your Georgetown University email regularly. All official communications from the University will be sent to your Georgetown University email address. This includes communications from the Office of Billing and Payment Services, the Registrar’s Office, the Summer Sessions Program Office, and your instructors. If you do not plan to check your Georgetown email address regularly, you should set up email forwarding to an email address that you do check regularly. You can access your Georgetown email using your NetID and password at
