Registration Resources:

  • Registration Information and Registration Dates and Times can be found at https://registrar.georgetown.edu/registration/registration-schedule
  • For help or questions about your NetID and password contact the UIS Help Desk at help@georgetown.edu or visit the UIS services in the Leavey Center Bookstore
  • See the Schedule of Classes at https://schedule.georgetown.edu for class offerings, descriptions and syllabi as well as the list of required and recommended books.
  • Once you are registered for a course, you have the option of ordering the books from the Bookstore through MyAccess. It is recommended you check the class syllabus before making a final purchase decision; in some cases, alternate versions of required or recommended texts may be acceptable for your classes. We also urge you to consider textbook rental and book buy-back programs as appropriate.

The waitlist will run each week day at 3 PM until September 5th (excluding holidays). Winners will receive an email from the University Registrar with instructions to claim their seat through MyAccess within 24 hours. After 24 hours, unclaimed seats will be awarded to the next student on the waitlist. Faculty reserve the right to drop students from the waitlist, if they do not attend class during the Add Drop period at the beginning of the term. Please be sure to drop from the waitlist, any class which you no longer want, so that others will be considered in the waitlist process.


With confidence that this will be another exciting and rewarding year for all of us, I offer you my best wishes for an enjoyable, and successful experience at Georgetown!
