First Year Application
Early Action Deadline Flexibility: The Office of Undergraduate Admissions will be flexible in regards to the Early Action application deadline for students who live in areas of the country recently impacted by natural disasters (California, Texas, etc.) or school closures/disruptions due to strikes (e.g., Illinois). We recognize that your college counselor or teachers may also encounter difficulties in submitting documents on your behalf. Please note that we will continue to accept documents beyond the November 1 deadline and this will not negatively impact your application review.
We encourage you to begin your application process as soon as possible so we may open your admissions file and track any documents sent in support of your application.
Please visit the General Information page for first-year applicants to learn more about Georgetown application process. For important information about the 2020 application process, we recommend you to review the Information for Applicants document.

Immediately after submitting the Georgetown Application you should complete Steps Two and Three. In Step Three, submission of the Application Supplement need not be completed until the application deadline.
Step Two – Within 24 hours of submitting the Georgetown Application, you will receive an email with instructions on how to create your application account. Once your account has been created, you will be able to complete and submit your Georgetown Application Supplement and send email requests to your College Counselor and Teacher(s) regarding your required recommendations.

Please complete this section as soon as you have secured the correct contact information for your recommenders. If for some reason you are unable to obtain or provide the email addresses, please contact the admissions office and we will be happy to provide additional guidance.
