Q: Is tutoring available for varsity student-athletes?
A: Varsity student-athletes have access to campus-wide resources (https://academicsupport.georgetown.edu/resources). In addition to these resources, there are drop-in tutoring sessions for student-athletes offered on a walk-in basis for a limited number of courses, determined by enrollment and demand; offerings vary by semester.
Q: What is the process by which varsity student-athletes are excused from class for athletic travel?
A: Varsity student-athletes are required to meet with the professor to discuss travel for the semester. Each student-athlete receives travel letters from their coach, detailing the semester’s schedule. The letter requires the professor's signature; signed forms are returned to head coach. The professor has three options: they can accommodate all of the travel, some of the travel (with notations about conflicts to be resolved); or, none of the travel. In nearly all cases, the Associate Director is able to collaborate with the professor, the student-athlete, and the coach to accommodate the specific needs of the course. Each resolution is different. All athletic time away from classes adheres to current NCAA rules and regulations.
