2019-2020 Academic Year Information:
Georgetown will be flexible and understanding regarding the transition many of you are making to a virtual learning environment. We also understand that the school year has come to an abrupt end for others. We anticipate that some of you will receive traditional grades for this semester and others simply be issued a pass/fail grade. Whatever the scenario you are facing, rest assured that we will work with you and your school counselor as needed. Individual schools and school districts are making decisions for their student populations that we will respect and honor when reviewing your transcript.
COVID-19 Standardized Testing Update:
Georgetown will implement a flexible approach to our standardized testing requirements for applicants to the Class of 2025. While we will continue to consider standardized test scores as part of our holistic admissions review process, we understand that some students may be prevented from taking either the SAT or ACT due to unprecedented challenges brought about by the global COVID-19 pandemic. For this reason, we will be flexible and fully consider applications from students who encounter difficulties completing standardized tests and are thus unable to provide SAT or ACT scores.
Please review our updated testing policy here.
Advanced Placement (AP) Exams:
Georgetown University is pleased to announce that it will honor the scores reported to us for the 2020 online AP exams. The amount of credit awarded will be determined by Georgetown’s AP policy, which is currently being reviewed, as it is every year, and will be finalized by individual departments later this spring. While some policies may change, they will NOT discriminate against 2020 AP scores based on the COVID-related adjustments to AP testing.
