- Additional Documents to Complete Your Application
The Georgetown Transfer Application for fall 2015 is now available. We encourage you to begin your application as soon as possible so we may open your admissions file and track any documents sent in support of your application. The transfer application deadline is March 1, 2015 but prospective candidates will need to complete both the Georgetown Transfer Application and the Georgetown Transfer Application Supplement, as well as coordinate the submission of required supporting documents.
Georgetown is committed to a holistic admission process, and transfer files are reviewed by Admission Committees composed of faculty, deans, current students who were transfers themselves, and admission officers. Typically, a cumulative B+ average or higher is recommended for transfer admission consideration.
Transfer applicants must provide official college/university transcripts from all previous institutions, as well as a completed Dean’s Report, Professor’s Report and Secondary School Report that includes the final high school transcript. Transfer applicants are required to provide either an SAT or ACT exam as part of the application process, unless the candidate has been out of high school for five or more years prior to the date of intended matriculation at Georgetown.
College/university transcripts need to be mailed to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Applicants are strongly encouraged to use the electronic request form (Step 3 of the Transfer Application Menu) to request submission of their Secondary School Report (including high school transcript), Dean’s Report and Professor’s Report. If hard-copy forms are preferred or required by your high school, dean or professor, PDF downloadable forms are available below in the section entitled Additional Documents to Complete Application.
Transfer students are admitted only for the fall semester. However, those students admitted for the fall may begin with the summer session if desired.
Georgetown Transfer Application Submission
There are four steps to applying as a transfer candidate.
We encourage you to submit your Georgetown Transfer Application as soon as possible. Submission of the form will require approximately twenty minutes and provide you with your Georgetown Identification Number necessary to complete the other steps. The Application also initiates the alumni interview process. Alumni interviews are optional for transfer applicants.
Step One - Submit Georgetown Transfer Application. This form will create your application file and assist in tracking any documents submitted in support of your application.
Step Two - Create an Applicant Profile. Upon creation of your Profile, you will be provided with a unique password, allowing you to save your Transfer Application Supplement for editing and revising prior to final submission by the March 1, 2015 deadline.
Step Three - Submit the Request Form for your Secondary School Report, Dean’s Report and Professor’s Report. You will need the e-mail addresses of your secondary school counselor (Secondary School Report), college/university dean (Dean’s Report) and college/university professor (Professor’s Report). College and University transcripts will need to be mailed to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
Step Four - Submit Georgetown Transfer Application Supplement. Please note that you must use the same e-mail address and password that you created for the Applicant Profile; this will allow you to save your work on the Supplement and submit it when you are ready. Deadline: March 1, 2015.
The Transfer Application Menu, which you will see is first presented for Steps Two, Three and Four, should assist you in completing you application.
We look forward to reviewing you application.
