2 Georgetown University McDonough School of Business Preregistration Instructions All students are required to preregister for Fall 2015 classes by Wednesday, July 29 th at 5:00 p.m. EST. You may preregister online using MyAccess (https://myaccess.georgetown.edu/). Students who do not have web access should contact the Undergraduate Program Office at for instructions. Although registration is NOT first-come, first-served, you are encouraged to register early in case the advisors have questions about your course requests. You may file your course requests beginning on Monday, June 29 th at 9:00 a.m. EST. You do not have to complete your preregistration in one sitting. You may save your work and come back to it at another time. Once you submit your requests and forward them for approval, you may not make additional changes until on-site Registration (August 31 st for transfer students or September 1 st for first-year students). To register, please follow these easy steps: 1 Getting Started Please read the following before you preregister: 2 l Steps 2 through 5 in this section of the guide l The Language Placement Guidelines section of this Guide l The online Schedule of Classes is accessible from the website of the Office of the University Registrar registrar.georgetown.edu/. Click on Fall 2015 Schedule of Classes. To search the Schedule of Classes, you will need to choose at least one department (e.g. Theology). You may choose several departments by choosing All or by holding down the Ctrl or Command key and choosing only the specific departments in which you How to know if a course is open or closed Detailed Class Information Writing and Culture Seminar WRIT Associated Term: Fal2015 Main Campus Seminar 3,000 Credits View Course Description View Textbook Registration Availability Seats Waitlist Seats would like to search. To view courses that fulfill specific requirements, search by Attribute Type (e.g., X- List: HIST). Once you have run a search, you can view available seating and course descriptions by clicking the course titles. Begin by compiling a list of open courses you would like to take. Do not select closed courses for preregistration (see illustration below for information). The instructions that follow in this Guide will tell you how to choose a complete schedule and how to arrange those for submission. First, however, you should make sure you re choosing courses that you Capacity Actual Remaining have a chance of receiving (i.e., open courses). l If you have AP or IB credit, read the Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate Credit section of this Guide. This section outlines the exams and scores for which McDonough gives credit, how that credit is applied to your course and credit requirements, and how, if at all, they can be used to fulfill your requirements. If you recently took AP exams, you may wish to wait to receive your scores from the College Board before preregistering (as long as it is before July 29). This course is open because it has remaining seats and no one on the waitlist. (See the 18 in the Seats row under Remaining AND the 0 in the Waitlist Seats row under Actual.) Any course with students on the waitlist is closed, regardless of the number of remaining seats.

If you have questions about your NetID or have forgotten your password, please refer to georgetown.edu/. You may also view your academic program information through MyAccess. Under the Student tab, select Student Records, then select View Academic Program Information. If you have questions about your academic program, contact the Undergraduate Program Office. Submit Your Registration Request FIRST-YEAR STUDENTS: Please consult your sample course schedule enclosed in this mailing for guidance on selecting appropriate courses. You should also consult with your Peer Ambassador who can be of great assistance. TRANSFER STUDENTS: Please consult your recommended schedule located in this packet. We strongly advise that you follow these recommendations when choosing your fall courses. A. Add courses to your schedule In MyAccess, select the Student tab, then select Registration, then select Pre-registration. This will lead you to the course panel. Once you click on Preregistration in the Student Services menu, you will be able to enter your requests. You can access the Schedule of Classes directly from this page and select classes that will then drop into this page. When you click on the Search button on the first line, you will be taken to the Fall 2015 Schedule of Classes. If you have a specific course in mind, you can select the department for that course, B. Arrange courses in order of preference When registration requests are processed, the system will consider all of your primary choices first, in the order of preference. You therefore have the strongest chance to get the enter the course number, and then hit search. For example, if you want to begin your Theology requirement and are interested in taking Problem of God, you can search for that course by selecting Theology in the Subject box, and typing 001 in the Course Number box. Select Search at the very bottom of the page. You can now see a list of all of the sections of Problem of God available for the fall. Once you select a course, it will populate in your preregistration screen. courses you list in spaces one and two, for example. Consider your ordering carefully, as those courses you need and/or want the most should be placed high. ALL NEW STUDENTS: Choose courses according to your degree requirements, and pay attention to restrictions noted in the Schedule of Classes. All students are required to be full-time and registered for four or five courses totaling credits. (Note: a class that has fewer than three credits does not count as a course ; each 6 credit intensive language class counts as two courses. Once you have decided on a schedule (including primary choices and alternates), proceed to the next step. It is essential that all students maintain accurate address and phone information in the University s Student Information System through MyAccess. Please make sure your contact information is correct under the Personal Information tab. Also, please review your biographical data and then corrections or additional information to the Registrar at: If you experience technical difficulties with MyAccess, call the Registrar s Office for help at or refer to their website at: 3
4 Georgetown University McDonough School of Business 4 C. List alternate course selections, and consider "any section" option The system offers additional tools for filling your schedule, in the event that you don t get one or more of your primary choices during preregistration. Alternate course selections allow for five additional choices, specific courses that correspond to the content or purpose of the primary courses with which they are paired. Alternate #1 is only considered as an alternative to primary #1, so they should relate to each other. Alternate courses choices are essential; if you do not list alternate courses, you severely reduce your chances of getting a full schedule. The Undergraduate Program Office may choose alternates for you if you do not list them yourself. The any section option is another effective way to ensure a full schedule. You will notice that many courses have a single course number with multiple sections to choose from (i.e. THEO 011). In those cases, we encourage you to use the any section option for that primary or alternate course choice. If the specific section you selected is unavailable (and only if that section is unavailable) the system will place you into an open section of the same course, where possible. The order of operations of these tools is important to consider as you complete your schedule requests. 1. All primary choices will be considered first, one through five. 2. After all primary choices are considered, the any section option on any failed primary choices will be attempted (if selected). 3. If gaps remain, corresponding alternates will be considered for their failed primary choices. 4. Finally, the any section option for the alternate choices will be attempted (if selected). Because you re thinking it No, including alternates and using the any section options does not decrease your chances of getting your primary choices. Your primary choices are given every consideration before attempting to address gaps with alternatives. These alternate measures help deliver a full course schedule. The only caution along these lines is that an any section result can create a time conflict with an alternate choice ranked lower, because of the order of operations listed above. VARSITY ATHLETES: If you will be participating in varsity athletics during the fall semester, please consult the Schedule of Classes and search for your practice time by highlighting Athletics in the Subject search field. Select your sport and add it in the last course request space when preregistering for your courses. By doing this, the system will avoid placing you in a class that meets during your practice time. Plan your schedule to avoid conflicts with team obligations. ROTC STUDENTS: If you are registering for Army ROTC, you should put your Military Science course, (i.e. MLSC-111- Leadership Skills) in the last course request space. Navy and Air Force ROTC students must wait until onsite registration to register for their ROTC courses.
5 Georgetown University McDonough School of Business NOTE: If you include an introductory section of theology or philosophy among your primary course requests, your alternate should be a section from the other discipline. In your alternate section for 4 theology/philosophy, you must choose Y, meaning yes, under the Any Section option. This will increase your chances of getting a theology or philosophy course for the fall term. Approval of Course Requests VIEWING YOUR FALL PREREGISTRATION RESULTS: Students may check MyAccess for registration results beginning Saturday, August 28. Students who need to make changes or additions to their schedules will not be able to do so until on-site Registration (August 31 for transfer students or September 1 for first-year students). The Undergraduate Program Office reserves the right to edit your preregistration to maximize your chances of getting a full schedule. Check your Georgetown University account regularly 5 for messages from the Undergraduate Program Office and the Registrar s Office. Once your course selections have been approved, your preregistration requests will be forwarded to the Registrar. Complete the Supplemental Information Form Online ACADEMIC ACCOMODATIONS: Students who received accommodations while in high school or at your previous institution for documented learning difficulties should contact Dr. Jane Holahan, the Director of the Academic Resource Center. Dr. Holahan can be reached at or via at For first-year students only, transfer students do not have to complete this form. There is some information vital to your transition into Georgetown academic life that the Undergraduate Program Office will not know unless you complete the Supplemental Information Form Online. Please go to MSB2019. If any of the following applies to you, you must fill out the appropriate form online located at MSB2019 to complete your preregistration: l If you have taken college courses as a high school student or you were in an international 13th year program (i.e., A-Levels, Italian Maturita, etc.). The online form will prompt us to search your file for transcripts, and we will contact you if we need more information to award credit on your academic record. l If you have AP credit, see pages for more information. l If you have IB credit, see pages for more information. 5
6 Curriculum Georgetown University McDonough School of Business The McDonough School of Business combines business and liberal arts courses to provide students with a strong foundation in critical thinking and reasoning. During the first and second years, the primary academic emphasis is on the liberal arts core. Students are not required to declare a major until the end of sophomore year. The focus then shifts to business courses in the junior and senior years. The typical course load is five courses (15 credits) each semester. However, students may take between 12 and 17 credits, depending on their background. Students must complete a minimum of at least 40 three-credit courses and 120 credits to graduate. The following section provides a detailed outline of the liberal arts requirement and more detailed information about exceptions. For example, Advanced Placement credits toward certain requirements can be made in a particular area. Because liberal arts education will account for most of the credits you will pursue during the fall semester, it is important that you study this information carefully. Please note, that where appropriate, we have provided separate information for first-year and transfer students. For descriptions of individual sections of courses, consult the online Schedule of Classes at Writing and HALC Requirement This requirement consists of three one-semester courses. To complete this requirement, students will complete one course from each of the following three categories. WRIT 015 should be taken by the end of sophomore year. 1) Writing and Culture Seminar WRIT 015 is an Intensive Writing Seminar centered on the analytic study of complex cultural texts. Transfer students intensive writing courses in English or literature may also satisfy this requirement. 2) Humanities: Arts, Literatures, and Culture (HALC courses) Courses satisfying this requirement can be found in a variety of departments on campus. Approved courses can be searched on the Schedule of Classes under Attribute Type HALC courses. Non-native English Speakers All non-native speakers of English entering as first-year or transfer students from universities abroad who have not taken the TEST of Written English (TWE) will be required to take a writing test which will be administered during New Student Orientation. ENFL 115: Literature & Writing for Foreign Students can be taken to fulfill the WRIT 015 requirement. Advanced Placement English Language & English Literature and International Baccalaureate: English If a student takes both exams, then the higher score is used because credit is awarded only once for both exams. Credit is awarded for a score of 4 or 5. Students with a score of 4 or 5 receive three credits for WRIT 015: Writing and Culture Seminar, which satisfies part of the university core requirement in writing and humanities. A score of 6 or 7 on the Higher Level IB English A1 exam warrants three credits for WRIT 015: Writing and Culture Seminar. 3) Integrated Writing Course The Integrated Writing requirement is completed as part of the major. Integrated Writing focuses on ways of writing that are specific to the discipline. Students in the McDonough School of Business can use the First Year Seminar and Business Communication courses to fulfill this requirement. This requirement only applies to first-year students. 6
7 Georgetown University McDonough School of Business Theology Requirement This requirement is two onesemester courses. Most students begin by taking THEO 001: The Problem of God or THEO 011: Introduction to Biblical Literature in their first year of study. First-Year Students In one semester of the first year, take either THEO 001: The Problem of God or THEO 011: Introduction to Biblical Literature. The second half of the Theology requirement may be completed with any Theology Department offerings that do not require further prerequisites, or any other course that is crosslisted with Theology. It is not recommended that you take Theology and Philosophy during the same semester. Transfer Students Transfer students should not register for THEO 001: The Problem of God. Rather, they should fulfill the requirement with Theology courses numbered 011 or higher. Courses crosslisted with Theology may also be taken to fulfill this requirement. Please be aware that intro level courses can not be taken after the end of junior year. History/Gov t/ Classics/INAF Requirement This requirement is two one-semester courses. Any history, government, or an approved classics or approved international affairs course with historical content will fulfill this requirement. Advanced Placement European and World History Students with a score of 5 on the Advanced Placement tests in European or World history will be awarded three credits towards the history/ government requirement. Students who receive a score of 5 on both tests will receive six credits, which completes this requirement. No credits or exceptions are granted for the AP test in US History or for the SAT II tests. International Baccalaureate: History Students will only receive credit with a score of 7 on the Higher Level exams in History. This will fulfill part of the history/ government requirement. Mathematics Requirement This requirement is a one semester course. Students are required to complete MATH 035: Calculus I by the end of their first year. Students who take MATH 29: Calculus with Review in the fall should take a designated section of MATH 035: Calculus I to complete the requirement in the spring semester. Advanced Placement Calculus A score of 4 or 5 on the AP Calculus AB or BC warrants 4 credits equivalent to MATH 035, therefore completing the requirement. Please review the rules for interpreting AP scores in the Advanced Placement Credit section of this guide. International Baccalaureate: Mathematics Students with a score of 6 or 7 on the IB Higher Level Mathematics exam will receive credit for MATH 035: Calculus I, therefore completing the requirement. Philosophy Requirement This requirement is two onesemester courses, one in general philosophy and one in ethics. First-Year Students Take PHIL 020: Introduction to Philosophy or PHIL 010: Introduction to Ethics. During your sophomore year, take a second course in the opposite area. It is not recommended that you take Philosophy and Theology in the same semester. Transfer Students If you have not completed any course work in philosophy please follow the instructions for first-year students. If you have completed one course in philosophy, you should select a course at the bridge level (PHIL or STRT 255) in the opposite area of the course you have completed at your former institution. Please be aware that intro level courses can not be taken after the end of junior year. 7
8 Georgetown University McDonough School of Business 8 International Baccalaureate: Philosophy Students with a score of 6 or 7 on the IB Higher Level Philosophy exam will receive credit for PHIL 020: Introduction to Philosophy. Students must take a second semester of a bridge level ethics course (PHIL ) or PHIL 010 or PHIL 098 or STRT 255 to fulfill the philosophy requirement. Economics Requirement This requirement is two onesemester courses in ECON 001: Microeconomics and ECON 002: Macroeconomics. Students are required to complete both courses by the end of their sophomore year. Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate in Economics A score of 5 on the AP Microeconomics exam warrants 3 credits equivalent to ECON 001. A score of 5 on the AP Macroeconomics exam warrants 3 credits equivalent to ECON 002. If a student scored a 4 on both micro and macro AP Econ exams, they can take ECON 003. In order to fulfill the ECON requirement the second course must be an intermediate level course (ECON 101 or 102) to fulfill the 6 credit requirement. Please review the rules for interpreting AP scores in the Advanced Placement Credit section of this guide. Scores of 6 or 7 on the higher level IB exam will give credit for both ECON 001 and ECON 002. Language McDonough students are not required to study a language, but are required to study two years of a language if they major in International Business. Please note that there are two different tracks of language study: intensive and nonintensive. Some languages (i.e., Arabic, Chinese, Modern Greek, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Russian) are offered only at the intensive level. Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate: Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Spanish Credit for Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate scores in language will be determined once the student has confirmed the appropriate level by taking the placement examination during New Student Orientation. Please note, Spanish and French SAT II scores may determine credit for AP Spanish and AP French. More information on languages can be found on Page 9. Business Core I Accounting Requirement This requirement is two onesemester courses in ACCT 101: Accounting I and ACCT 102: Accounting II. Students begin by taking ACCT 101 in the Spring semester of their first year. Statistics Requirement This 4 credit requirement consists of two courses OPIM 170: Computational Business Modeling (1 credit) and OPIM 173: Business Statistics (3 credits). All students must take these two courses unless you fall in one of the areas below. Students are required to complete these courses during their first year. Note: MATH 035: Calculus I and OPIM 170: Computational Business Modeling are prerequisites for OPIM 173: Business Statistics. Advanced Placement Statistics A score of 5 on the AP Statistics exam warrants part of the statistics requirement (2 credits). Students who receive AP credit for statistics should enroll in OPIM 172: Statistical Models for Business for 2 credits to meet the 4 credit statistics requirement. Please consult the Advanced Placement Credit section of this Guide for more information. Note: MATH 035: Calculus I is a prerequisite for OPIM 172. Transfer Students If you transferred in statistics credit and you see it listed as "OPIM 12-" for 2 credits, it means you will need to take OPIM 172 for 2 credits to meet the 4 credit requirement.
9 Georgetown University McDonough School of Business Language Placement Guidelines McDonough students, while not required to study a language (except for IB majors), are encouraged to integrate language study into their curricula. To place yourself in the appropriate course, you must visit the following web page for specific guidelines and online tests: These guidelines are for students placing into a language which they have already studied. Students with no previous experience in a language should enroll in the introductory course and need not take a placement test. If you are directed to take an online test, you must take the test prior to submitting your course requests and you are expected to abide by the Georgetown University Honor Code. All work is to be completed by the student and with no assistance from other individuals. After you have reviewed the guidelines and/ or taken an online test, please consult the Fall 2015 Schedule of Classes (http://myaccess.georgetown.edu) for meeting days and times of all language classes and register for the appropriate course. Language Placement Guidelines On this page you will find placement guidelines for: Arabic Chinese French German Greek: Ancient Greek: Modern Hebrew Italian Japanese Korean Latin Persian Polish Portuguese Russian Spanish Turkish Ukrainian NOTE: FOR STUDENTS WHO PLAN TO TAKE FRENCH Students who have not taken the SAT II Examination must take the French online placement test during the summer.

10 Georgetown University McDonough School of Business Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate Credit 1. Advanced Placement Credit: In most cases, Georgetown awards credit for Advanced Placement scores of 4 or 5. If you released your scores to Georgetown at the time you sat for your AP exams, you will receive a letter confirming your AP credit from the Admissions Office in August. If you have not had your scores sent to Georgetown, you should call ETS at CALL-4-AP. To graduate, students must complete a minimum of 40 three credit courses and 120 credit hours. AP credit awards count towards these course and credit hour totals. In some cases, the credit may also count towards liberal arts electives and major requirements (please see full polices on the AP chart). If you do not receive your AP scores by July 10th (when the Expected Advanced Credit Information Online Form is due), select your courses based on your best guess of how you performed on the AP exams. You will be able to make changes to your course selections during Registration on September 1st, if necessary. If you expect to receive AP credit for one or more AP exams, please let us know by completing the Expected Advanced Credit Information Online Form found at 10 NOTE: If a student has both AP scores and IB scores eligible for credit in the same subject, the student may apply credit from the AP exam or IB exam, but not both.

17 ABOUT PRE-REGISTERING FOR CALCULUS I All McDonough students must take Calculus I, MATH 035, to complete the required McDonough School of Business liberal arts requirement. This requirement can be fulfilled by either a 4 or 5 on the AP Calculus exam, or by taking the course. Students typically begin their study of calculus with Calculus I, MATH 035, but because of the added contextual emphasis, students without a strong mathematics background may struggle in this course. To insure that students are ready for Calculus I, we require one of the following in order to enroll in MATH 035: A grade of B or better in a high school or college calculus course A two or better on the Advanced Placement AB or BC Calculus test or a score of three or better on the IB exam in Mathematics A passing grade on our online placement test (See below) Permission of Professor Mary Erb, Director of Undergraduate Studies, Department of Mathematics and Statistics To help students succeed, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics has created a Fall only course, Calculus with Review, MATH 029. This three credit course introduces the same concepts of calculus, but at a pace that allows for added emphasis on applications. The class size for this course will be smaller so that students can receive additional help from the instructors. Students taking this course would continue in the Spring with specially marked sections of Calculus I, MATH 035, in which they continue where they left off in the Fall. At the end of the year, the students will have had the equivalent of MATH 035 and will have gained a deeper understanding and appreciation for the applications of calculus to different fields. Please note, MATH 029 will count as a liberal arts elective for McDonough students, but students must take MATH 035 to complete their calculus requirement. To help students determine which course they should take, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics has an online calculus readiness test which tests both student s algebraic skills and their ability to reason mathematically. This test will take under 45 minutes to complete and may be retaken once if a student believes she or he can do better. A calculator may be used on this test. To take this test, go to: 1. At the login screen, click register and fill in your name, Net Id, and address. Also create a login and password for yourself and keep it handy and safe. 2. After creating your account, you are taken back to the login page where you can now click login. 3. Once inside, you will see Math Placement Tests. Click on this and you will see Calculus Readiness Test. Click on this link to begin the test. Once you begin you have 45 minutes to complete. At the end of the test, you will receive your score and a recommendation. This test is made available to help students find the appropriate course to help them complete the McDonough mathematics requirement.

Liberal Arts and University Core These courses are requirements for every McDonough student. They can be fulfilled throughout your academic career. Calculus (MATH 035) 2 Economics courses (ECON 001 and 002) 2 History/Government/Historical Based Classics & INAF courses (Classics and INAF courses must be approved by MSB Dean s Office to count for requirement) WRIT 015 and HALC (Humanities, Arts, Literature, & Culture) course 2 Philosophy courses (1 general and 1 ethics course) 2 Theology courses 7 Liberal Arts Electives (non-business course, but no more than two ECON courses) HELPFUL INFORMATION Accounting I (ACCT 101) should only be taken in the spring semester of your first year. If you decide to take Calculus with Review (MATH 029), please note that it is the first course of a year-long sequence that covers the material in a Calculus I course. This year-long sequence is appropriate for students who have little or no exposure to calculus and who do not have a strong pre-calculus/algebra background. This course will fulfill one of your seven liberal arts electives. You will have to take MATH 035 in the spring semester of your first year to complete your mathematics requirement. If you are considering enrolling in MATH 029, please take the online math placement exam (please see the enclosed flyer for instructions). Students should take a balanced schedule of both qualitative and quantitative courses each semester. Look at your Expected AP/IB courses and the AP/IB chart so you do not duplicate credit and register for the same course requirement at Georgetown. Georgetown will not allow students to receive credit for the same course twice.
