Visiting Student Program

The Special Student Program is meant for non-degree seeking students who wish to take one or two classes at Georgetown. Due to limitations of space, Georgetown is only able to offer admission to a limited number of Special Students. Applications must be approved by the Dean of the school in which the student wishes to study. Admission for Special Students is for one semester only.

Students who are earning degrees at schools other than Georgetown and who wish to attend Georgetown as Special Students must include with their application materials a letter from the current Dean approving the courses to be taken at Georgetown for the degree requirements of their own schools.

Application Procedure

You may download the application here below or obtain it from the Dean's Office of the appropriate undergraduate school.

Please do not send the application and supporting materials to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. The application along with the $75 application fee should be sent to the school to which you are applying.

Special Student applications are reviewed on an individual basis and therefore an admitted student profile is not available.

Georgetown is not able to provide students visas for Special students.

We appreciate your interest in Georgetown University and look forward to working with you throughout the application process.
