COVID-19 Updates for Counselors:
Enrollment Agreement and Deposit Due Date:
May 1, 2020, remains the due date for students to submit their deposit and enrollment agreement form. Information on how to pay the deposit is included with their admission letter and remains available through their student portal.
2019-2020 Academic Year Information:
Georgetown will be flexible and understanding regarding the transition students 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 students will receive traditional grades for this semester and others will simply be issued a pass/fail grade. Whatever the scenario students are facing, we are happy to work with you and your students. Individual schools and school districts are making decisions for their student populations that we will respect when reviewing transcripts.
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 academic 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.
Standardized Testing Policy:
Georgetown will continue to require submission of either the SAT or ACT for all first-year applicants. Submission of three SAT Subject tests is recommended but not required. While Subject tests are a valued portion of our holistic admissions review process, these tests should not create a barrier for applicants. The Committee on Admissions considers all facets of student achievement and within the context of each applicant’s experience, location, and environment.
Please review our complete testing policy here.
International Baccalaureate /A-Level/Pre-U and other international Exams:
Georgetown University is pleased to announce that it will honor the scores reported to us for 2019-2020 International Baccalaureate (IB) coursework. The amount of credit awarded will be determined by Georgetown’s IB policies which are currently being reviewed, as they are every year, and will be finalized by individual academic departments later this spring. While some policies may change, they will NOT discriminate against IB scores based on the COVID-related cancellation of exams. This same principle will apply to international exams such as A-Levels, Pre-U, French Baccalauréat, Irish Leaving Certificate, German Abitur and Italian Maturita.
