Title: Extension of Add/Drop Deadline Fall 2020

Office of the Provost

Dear Georgetown University Main Campus Students,

We recognize that the current transition to virtual learning for the Fall Semester 2020 may present challenges making it more difficult to make decisions regarding the Fall course schedule within our current Add/Drop schedule. These challenges may be heightened during the COVID-19 environment. In addition, if you are enrolled in a class that only meets once a week, the current Add/Drop schedule may not provide you with enough time to make an informed decision if you have encountered technical issues. In all cases, we encourage you to meet with your faculty and academic advisors to discuss your course options.

The University will extend the Add/Drop deadline from Friday, September 4, 2020 to Monday, September 14, 2020 to allow you additional time to make an informed decision on your Fall course schedule while under COVID-19 constraints.

Tuition will be refunded at 100% for any courses dropped during the extended Add/Drop period, and tuition will be charged at 100% for any courses added during the extended add/drop period. The last day for withdrawals with tuition refunded at 100% will be September 15. Otherwise, tuition refund calendars for withdrawals are unaffected by this change.

Thank you for your hard work this semester, and we look forward to an exciting and productive Fall term together.


Robert M. Groves
