Minimum Credit Requirement - JD Students

(Effective since Fall 2016)

A J.D. student may seek a one-time waiver of the per-semester credit minimum from an academic advisor for compelling reasons.  See "Permission to Underload" (p. 8 of the Georgetown Law Student Handbook).  A waiver is required for full-time students earning fewer than 10 credits and part-time students earning fewer than 6 credits in a semester.  A student who does not receive approval for a waiver will have their graduation date extended by one semester.
