Checklist for Noncredit Programs

Welcome to Georgetown University's Professional Certificate Programs! We’re excited to help you advance, change, or refocus your career.

The majority of our certificate programs and courses are open enrollment, so you can register right away. If you applied to a cohort program and have received your offer of admission, there are a few important steps to secure your seat.

Open Enrollment Programs

  1. CREATE YOUR STUDENT PROFILE

    If you’re a current Georgetown student or an alumnus, use your existing NetID and password to create your profile.

  2. REGISTER FOR COURSES & ARRANGE PAYMENT

    You can find out what courses are required and what payment options are available on the certificate program’s homepage.

  3. CHECK YOUR EMAIL

    We’ll be sending you a course reminder with important information on your class location and requirements the week before your class starts.

  4. REVIEW THE NONCREDIT STUDENT HANDBOOK

    Make sure you understand your responsibilities as a student and find out about the resources available to help you succeed.

Cohort Certificate Programs

  1. ACCEPT YOUR OFFER OF ENROLLMENT

    For our cohort programs it’s essential to your learning and that of your fellow students that you be present for all class sessions and activities.

    Our enrollment team will be sending you an enrollment form to confirm that you’re able to attend program. Please review the published course dates carefully and return your enrollment form within one week.

  2. ARRANGE PAYMENT

    Once you confirm your enrollment you’ll receive information on your tuition balance and assigned payment deadline. You can pay your balance in full or you can opt in to our payment plan and arrange to pay in four installments.
