Guide to Course Selection and Registration for New Students
Welcome, New Transfer Students!
Registration for new transfer students will take place on Tuesday, November 12 at 8:30 a.m. EST. You will register online through MyAccess. Registration continues through the end of the fall semester, over the course of the winter break, and ends with the Add/Drop period, the last day of which is Friday, January 17.
The 8:30 start time is significant. Tuesday, November 12 is the day that all sophomores, returning and new, register for classes. Returning students begin entering the system at 9:00 am. Your 8:30 start time gives you a brief window where you are basically alone in MyAccess adding courses that you need and want. Consider a kind of headstart; take advantage of this!
The Guide to Course Selection and Registration (“Guide”) will introduce you to the Georgetown College curriculum and help you choose your courses. Reading the Guide is the first step to preparing for Registration.
Spring Transfers: Download the Course Selection and Curriculum resource.
Fall First-Years and Transfers: Download the complete Guide here.
The Guide begins with an introduction to the Core curricular requirements of the College and ends with an appendix of sample schedules. We view these topics as layers that build upon each other, and while it may be tempting to skip around, we recommend you read this material from beginning to end, dedicating time to explore each section:
Topic four: Registration
Topic five: Resources and Sample Schedules
Key Resources for New Students (in alpha order):
