Non-Degree Graduate Program

Purpose of the Program and Enrollment

Attorneys, who wish to take courses in a particular field, may apply for admission through the Office of the Registrar as a 'Visiting Non-Degree Graduate Student'.  

To be considered for acceptance into this program, students must hold either

  • a J.D. or LL.M. degree from an ABA-approved law school with at least a "C+" cumulative grade point average, or

  • a J.D. or LL.M. from Georgetown University Law Center. 

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 Graduate students may enroll in a total of no more than two graduate courses or a maximum of eight 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.

Non-degree students must satisfy the same academic requirements and abide by the same Law Center rules and policies as candidates for graduate degrees as outlined in the Student Handbook.
