Preparing for Admission

Georgetown Summer School

Through its School of Continuing Studies (new window), Georgetown University offers summer courses (new window) that can prepare interested students in computer science, mathematics, and statistics. There are two consecutive summer sessions of five weeks each. Classes typically meet four days per week. These courses include.

  • Computer Science I (COSC-051). This is a programming course in C++. It is offered during both summer sessions.
  • Computer Science II (COSC-052). This is an advanced programming course in C++ that is offered during the second summer session.
  • Multivariable Calculus (MATH-137). The course is always offered during the first summer session.
  • Linear Algebra (MATH-150). The course is always offered during the second summer session and can be taken after Multivariable Calculus.
  • Probability and Statistics (MATH-040). The course is offered during the first summer session. It is equivalent to a calculus-based statistics course, as required for admission.

Preparation Courses at Other Institutions and Online

Interested students who have gaps in their preparation may take their required courses at any accredited institution of higher education. These courses are typically offered at community colleges, at convenient times and usually at favorable tuition rates. You can also take courses online, as long as the offering institution is accredited. Before enrolling in such a class, please contact the program. We would be happy to look at the course content and determine if it is appropriate.

All pre-requisites should be completed before you apply. The program may admit outstanding students with some pre-requisites in progress when applications are reviewed.
