Information for Counselors

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.

Georgetown’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions is pleased to work in partnership with high school college counselors throughout the year. We hope that the information provided below will assist you and your students throughout the application process. You will find important information about the application process including our admissions and financial aid policies, timelines, high school preparation requirements, and the many resources and opportunities at Georgetown. If you have additional questions about the admissions process we encourage you to contact the admissions office directly at 202-687-3600.

Instructions to Submit Counselor and Teacher Forms

Please note that we are not on Naviance and cannot receive any materials sent through the Naviance portal. We strongly prefer that you use our Georgetown online system to submit the Secondary School Report, Teacher’s Report, and Midyear School Report forms. You will have access to these forms once your student has added your name and email address to their Application Supplement.  Please use the unique link sent to you in these emails to securely submit all supporting documents. 

In addition to receiving forms through the unique link sent to you by your student, we are also accepting documents through Slate.org. If you have not already done so, we encourage you to establish a Slate.org account for your school at no cost. Once an account has been established, you will be able to use Slate.org to upload applicant materials. You will also be able to log in to Slate.org and view the decisions for all applicants from your school when decisions are released. Through Slate.org we will hope to receive the Georgetown forms as listed below.
