The Guide to Course Selection and Registration (“Guide”) will introduce you to the Georgetown College curriculum and help you choose your courses for the fall semester. Reading the Guide is the first step to preparing for Registration.
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):
ACTFL Language Proficiency Assessments: For students with advanced proficiency (including but not limited to native speakers) in a language NOT offered at Georgetown who seek to fulfill the language requirement.
MyAccess: Georgetown University’s Registration System
Supplemental Information Form: For students who (1) have taken International Baccalaureate exams or completed another international program; (2) have taken college courses while in high school
