LL.M. Summer Experience students will need to attend a session during the first week of Foundations.
All other students will need to attend a session during Orientation. Please see your Orientation schedule for date, time, and location.
It is important that you attend the session, even if you have already been in F-1 or J-1 status at another university. Georgetown has many Georgetown-specific policies, and we want to make sure that you understand our policies and your responsibilities before the year begins.
