Standardized Test Scores
– Deadline to submit:
For Fall 2021 – March 1, 2021
If you were intending to take first-time testing (SAT or ACT) and have been unable to do so because of COVID-19, please know that your Transfer Application will be fully reviewed without testing. Georgetown does not subscribe to the College Board’s Score Choice program, in that we do require applicants who have been out of high school five or fewer years to submit standardized testing if they have taken these exams. If an applicant is unable to provide standardized testing because of current public health circumstances, and has no previous scores to provide, their application will be fully considered without testing.
Georgetown asks that all transfer applicants submit standardized test results from the SAT and/or ACT with the transfer application. If, however, a transfer applicant has been out of high school for more than five years prior to the intended date of matriculation at Georgetown, the SAT/ACT requirement is waived.
Standardized test scores should be sent to Georgetown directly from the testing agency. If you have previously applied to Georgetown within the past two years, your standardized test scores will still be on file with the Admissions Office, and there is no need to re-send an additional score report.
Georgetown’s SAT code is 5244. Georgetown only considers the Critical Reading and Math portions of the SAT, not the Writing section. If an applicant takes the SAT more than once, the admissions committees will consider the highest Critical Reading score and the highest Math score from multiple test sessions when reviewing the application.
Georgetown’s ACT code is 0668. Georgetown accepts the ACT in lieu of the SAT. Applicants who take the ACT more than once will have their highest Composite score considered in the evaluation process. The optional Writing section on the ACT is not required, nor is the Writing subscore used in the application review process.
