Consortium Courses

Georgetown University graduate students may enroll for courses at other universities in the Washington, DC area through the Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area (new window), provided the courses are not available at Georgetown University. You must obtain permission from the Consortium, the Georgetown Graduate Dean, and the visited institution, and you cannot register for a Consortium course during Early Registration. Detailed rules are available on the Graduate School webpage

The total of all transfer and consortium courses may not exceed 25% of the curriculum that is counted towards graduation. In addition, transfer and consortium courses do not count toward the Georgetown grade point average.

If you took a class at another area institution directly (not through the Consortium), you can ask for transfer of credit, subject to the 25% limit on transfer credit.
