Applying to Georgetown
We believe you will find Georgetown's application process highly personalized. Georgetown uses its own application for admission and we are able to coordinate an alumni interview for nearly all candidates. While a candidate’s academic performance is the most important criteria under consideration, accomplishments outside of the classroom, demonstrated commitment to the broader community, and personal qualities such as resiliency, motivation and ambition are certainly considered. It is these qualities that make you an individual and someone who will uniquely add to - and benefit from – the Georgetown University community. We look forward to getting to know you.
Plan a Visit
To experience the university’s rich environment, we invite you to campus to attend an information session and campus tour. Reservations are required so please see Visit Georgetown page for more information. Throughout the year we host information sessions presented by a member of the admissions staff followed by student-led campus tours. The Georgetown admissions staff also travels throughout the United States and internationally during the spring and fall.
Commitment to Diversity
Georgetown actively seeks and recruits highly talented and motivated students from all backgrounds. The university enrolls more than 6,300 undergraduates from all 50 states and over 130 countries; approximately a third of all students are fluent in more than one language when they arrive on campus. Whether you hail from a small, rural community or a major metropolitan area – or somewhere in between – you will find a place among Georgetown’s dynamic and talented community of students.
Georgetown's commitment to ensuring a diverse student body is evidenced through its need-blind admission process and its commitment to meet 100% of the demonstrated financial need for all eligible students. Every undergraduate applicant receives admission consideration without regard to his or her financial circumstances. Once admitted, every student will have his or her demonstrated financial need met in full.
