Short Courses Policies

Fees and Payments

Fees are due upon registration in the program. We accept Visa, Master Card, and American Express. The program fees cover tuition, program materials, a light breakfast, and lunch.

Participant Cancellations, Substitutions, and Transfers 

All requests for cancellations, substitutions, and transfers must be submitted in writing. Submit your request via email to Justin Harried (democracystudies@georgetown.edu)

A transfer occurs when a participant registers for a class he or she cannot attend, and instead asks to transfer the registration to an equivalently priced class. One transfer per registrant to an alternative offering within 12 months is allowed. Georgetown does not guarantee a suitable alternative class will be offered. A substitution occurs when a participant registers for a class he or she cannot attend and instead asks to send someone else in his or her place.

The policies for such requests are as follows:

Students enrolled at the point of cancellation will receive a 100% tuition refund.
