Updated September 23, 2022
Graduate and upperclass J.D. Students will be able to add, drop, and waitlist courses from their registration start time through 3:00 PM ET on Tuesday, January 24 for the Spring 2023 semester.
Please keep in mind that registration is first-come, first-served for most courses. For waitlisted courses, enrollment priority is determined by (1) student type (class year/degree program) and (2) the date/time a student joins the waitlist. We anticipate that in-demand seats will fill quickly after each registration start time. Students should plan accordingly and be prepared to register when their registration window opens.

Note: Any changes to this timeline will be communicated through Georgetown’s email system and on the Office of the Registrar website. Each student has a Georgetown Google Apps for Education email account and should check this account regularly.
Students may freely drop courses before the last day of add/drop activity without notation on their transcripts (some courses have special add/drop and withdrawal deadlines as noted in the Curriculum Guide). After the add/drop deadline, course withdrawals must be approved by an academic advisor and are subject to the Tuition Refund Schedule. A withdrawal notation (“W”) will be posted to the transcript for the withdrawn course. See Course Withdrawals for the full policy, instructions, and the request form.
