Academic Resources

From state-of-the-art digital tools to one-on-one consultations and disability accommodations, SCS provides a number of academic resources to help you make the most of your studies.

Academic Affairs

The Office of Academic Affairs & Compliance monitors student progress to ensure that minimum academic standards are met; serves as the final point of appeal for exceptions to policy; assesses overall program quality; and provides academic trainings and workshops to students, faculty, and staff.

All programs offered by Georgetown are accredited through the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, and all graduate programs have been approved by the Graduate School at Georgetown. To learn more, please visit Georgetown's Middle States Accreditation page.

The Office of Academic Affairs & Compliance welcomes visitors by appointment. To schedule an appointment time, or for any questions you may have, please contact us at scsoaac@georgetown.edu.
