Georgetown University admits and enrolls students without regard to their financial circumstances and is committed to meeting the demonstrated financial need of eligible students through a combination of aid programs that include grants, scholarships, employment and loans from federal, state, private, and University resources.
Financial aid at Georgetown is based on demonstrated need; we do not offer academic or merit based scholarships. To receive consideration for financial aid, students must complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and the CSS Profile (College Scholarship Service).
Please follow the links below sponsored by the Office of Student Financial Services to find answers to frequently asked questions and links to both the FAFSA and CSS Profile:
Please complete both the FAFSA and CSS Profile by February 1. Questions about completing these forms should be directed to the Office of Student Financial Services at (202)687-4547.
Georgetown University is Need-Blind for all applicants.
Admitted students who have requested financial aid and are not U.S. citizens or permanent residents will be considered for a very limited number of need-based scholarships. To be considered for one of these scholarships, the student/applicant will need to indicate their intent to apply for financial aid on the Application for Undergraduate Admission and should submit a CSS/Financial Aid Profile online. For further details, please see the Office of Student Financial Services website.
Whether admitted either under our Early Action or Regular Decision review periods, all candidates for financial aid will be notified about their eligibility for aid, their financial aid awards or about missing documents during the first week of April.
Please note that we are now using the CSS/Financial Aid Profile in place of the International Student Financial Aid form.
