All Georgetown faculty have been asked to prepare their courses for instructional continuity. The Vice Dean and Tech Center have shared resources for faculty and students to be able to connect virtually. The Tech Center also has an instructional continuity guide for students, faculty, and staff.

Students can expect to receive instructions from their specific programs and faculty members on how to connect for individual classes.


The university has provided guidance for university, visitors, visiting groups, and hosts on its website.


The university has shared useful health information about coronavirus for our community members who are not feeling well, who may have come into contact with an individual who is not well, or who is looking for preventative measures.


Georgetown McDonough is maintaining an archive of messages to the community on our website.


Students (or parents) with questions should reach out to their academic advisor.
