Non-Degree Program for Law School Graduates
Attorneys who wish to take courses in a particular field may apply for admission through the Office of the Registrar as non-degree students. To be considered for acceptance into this program, students must hold a J.D. or LL.M. degree from an ABA-approved law school with at least a "C+" cumulative grade point average or an LL.M. from Georgetown. Students who do not have a degree from a U.S. law school but who have a law degree from outside the U.S. will be considered for admission on a case by case basis. Students accepted into the non-degree program are not candidates for a graduate degree.
Non-degree students may enroll in a total of no more than four graduate courses or a maximum of eight credit hours, and may take no more than two courses per semester. Non-degree students must satisfy the same academic requirements and abide by the same Law Center rules and policies as candidates for graduate degrees.
Non-degree students cannot enroll in J.D. first-year or clinical courses, nor can they enroll in a program of Graduate Independent Research.
Note: Enrollment is on a space-available basis with enrollment priority given to degree candidates.
Non-degree students are charged a non-refundable application fee of $90 which is due by the application deadline (April 29, 2013, for Summer 2013). To pay the application fee, please complete the Credit Card Authorization form here and submit either via fax at 202-662-4069 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The application fee must be paid by the April 29th deadline in order to register for Summer courses.
