Transfer Applicant

General Information

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.

There are two simple steps necessary to initiate your Transfer Application (creating an Applicant Profile and submitting the Part I of the Transfer Application). Combined, these two steps should take you no longer the 15 minutes to complete.

Thus, we encourage you to start your Transfer Application as soon as possible. Doing so will allow you ample time to complete the Part II of the Transfer Application by the March 1 deadline, and allow time for us to address any questions or technical issues that might arise. Starting your application as soon as possible also allows us to open your admission file and track documents sent in support of your application.

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 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.

If you are interested in transferring into the undergraduate nursing program at Georgetown, please visit The School of Nursing & Health Studies (NHS) website for additional information.
