Registration Process

Non-Degree J.D students may enroll in a maximum of six credit hours, and may take no more than two courses per semester. If one is interested in attending Georgetown Law for multiple semesters, an application must be submitted for each semester.

Upon completion of your application and admission to the Non-Degree J.D. program, you will be sent information regarding your registration by The Office of the Registrar.

Available Courses

Available courses and exam information for 2017-2018.

As Non-Degree J.D. students, any LAWJ course section is available to you, unless a specification is mentioned in the course description or has been mentioned above.  Courses requiring a prerequisite will be noted as such in the course's description.  If a course has a prerequisite listed, you must have completed that prerequisite or request that the professor teaching the course waive the prerequisite in writing.  Non-Degree J.D. students cannot enroll in J.D. first-year or clinical/externship courses, nor can they enroll in a program of Graduate Independent Research.

The non-degree program is NOT available to interested students on a distance basis.

Seat availability in courses will not be determined until one's application is completed and processed.  If a course is closed by the time one's application is processed, one will be placed on the waitlist for that course.  

Please also review important policies and procedure information.  

Upon completion of your application and admission to the Non-Degree J.D. program, you will be sent information and instructions on registration by The Office of the Registrar.

Immunization Requirements

  1. District of Columbia law requires all students under the age of 26 on registration day to submit proof of immunization against polio, tetnus/diphtheria, measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis B, and varicella.  This is D.C law and cannot be ignored.

  2. Any student who is required to submit medically acceptable proof of immunization and does not do so will have a $100.00 late immunization fee added to his or her student account. 

  3. Please refer to the Student Health Center for information regarding immunizations and health services.

Tuition

Students should contact the Office of Student Accounts at (202) 662-9057, by email or visit their website for specific tuition information. 

Non-Degree J.D. students are not eligible for loans or other aid through Georgetown Law.

Withdrawal after Enrollment

If your plans change and you decide not to attend classes, you must submit written notice of withdrawal to the Office of the Registrar via email to lawreg@georgetown.edu in order for your tuition charges to be cancelled and any appropriate refund to be processed. It is your responsibility to meet the withdrawal regulations and deadlines in order to be properly withdrawn without an administrative failure or loss of eligible refund.

Notice of withdrawal to any office other than the Office of the Registrar does not constitute sufficient notice for refund/credit purposes.  The refund policy is strictly enforced to ensure fairness to all.

Please read carefully the course withdrawal policy.  It is your responsibility to meet the withdrawal regulations and deadlines in order to be properly withdrawn without an administrative failure or loss of eligible refund.

The refund schedule for the 2017-2018 academic year will be posted to the Office of Student Accounts webpage.
