GU Experience Documentation for Faculty

In Summer 2024, Georgetown University launched GU Experience, a self service portal designed for students, faculty, advisors, and staff. GU Experience offers a more modern and mobile friendly view with functionality designed to make the user interface more accessible and intuitive. GU Experience will serve as the central location to view course schedules, manage course registration, access student account information, enter and view grades, and request refunds and transcripts. You may also visit the general GU Experience Upgrade webpage.


Faculty can…

Faculty members should work with their departments to make sure they are properly attached to the courses they are teaching so the courses can be viewed and graded in GU Experience.

GU Experience is a secure web application that is the student and faculty view into the student information system. Faculty can manage and view their student academic records. Students can view academic history, accounts, and financial aid information.

How do I log into GU Experience?

Use a modern web browser like Google Chrome, Firefox, or Safari to navigate to GU Experience, and log in with your SSO NetID and password.

As with any system containing confidential data, the best practice is to always sign out after you have completed your task.

All students, faculty, and staff that utilize MyAccess to access student information will be using GU Experience.

Will I use the same credentials to log into GU Experience?

Yes, you will use your netID and netID password.

How do I obtain an electronic copy of my class roster?

You can use the following options to obtain a copy of your class roster:

Please note

  • Send grading comments to us by writing to For now, no pop up will appear so you must remember to send notes as appropriate.
  • Be sure to send a note with name, ID number, and grade for any student who attended the class but does not appear on the roster.
  • You are not required to submit all grades at once, but you should submit one for each student by the deadline. You may record “NR” for any student for whom you are not able to submit a grade but please provide an explanation. We may change some of these to “F” (FA) according to University policy.

If you do not submit a roster, “NR” will be reported for all students.

While you may enter information in either of these fields, it is not required to successfully submit grades.

What happens if I enter the wrong grade for a student?

You will be unable to make the change in GU Experience. Send an email to for assistance.
