Georgetown University welcomes transfer student applications for admission to its undergraduate schools. The University, through its Committee on Admissions, selects those transfer students most likely to profit from the educational offerings of Georgetown. Each year, the admissions committee evaluates approximately 2000 applications for transfer. Applicants for transfer admission are measured on two scales: academic and personal.
Georgetown accepts transfer applications from students who have attended community colleges or four-year colleges and universities. Transfer applicants must have graduated from high school or earned high school diploma equivalent, and should have completed at least one full-time semester of at least twelve transferrable credits, or the equivalent, on the college level but no more than four full-time semesters. High school students currently enrolled in a dual enrollment program, earning both high school and college credit towards their high school graduation requirements, must submit the first-year application.
Transfer applicants are only admitted for the fall semester. Students must spend a minimum of four full semesters and earn 60 credits in residency at Georgetown to earn a degree.
For important information about the 2014 application process, we recommend you to download and review the Information for Applicants document.
We encourage you to begin your application by submitting the Transfer Application: Part One as soon as possible. Upon receipt, we will open your application file. Additionally, submitting the application sooner will permit a more timely scheduling of the optional alumni interview in your local community. (The application will be available in mid-September 2013.) We are, unfortunately, not able to guarantee alumni interviews for transfer applicants. If a volunteer alumni interviewer is available in your area, you will be contacted by email. Since we are unable to guarantee the availability of an interview, it is not required as part of the transfer application.
Since we communicate with candidates about scheduling alumni interviews as well as missing credentials via e-mail, we kindly ask that you allow access for georgetown.edu e-mail addresses through any spam filters you or your internet service provider employs. Blocked e-mails of a timely nature can hinder critical communication.
