Admissions & Financial Aid
Located in a historic neighborhood in the nation's capital, Georgetown offers rigorous academic programs, a global perspective, exciting ways to take advantage of Washington, D.C., and a commitment to social justice. Our community is a tight knit group of remarkable individuals interested in intellectual inquiry and making a difference in the world.
Georgetown’s nine schools offer a wide variety of intellectually rigorous programs designed to prepare students for many disparate careers and guide them toward their intellectual and professional goals.
Our schools offer undergraduate and graduate degrees, including law, medical, business administration and public policy degrees, medical residencies, post-doctoral positions and a growing number of specialized certificates and continuing education programs.
Undergraduate Admissions and Financial Aid
An undergraduate applicant's ability to pay tuition is not a criterion for admission. In 1978, Georgetown began its historic commitment to meet the financial need of every undergraduate who merits admission. The University works to provide eligible students 100 percent of their demonstrated financial need through scholarships, loans and other forms of assistance. Our practices mean that every eligible undergraduate student, once accepted, can afford to enroll. Each year over half of Georgetown undergraduates receive some form of financial assistance.

Graduate Admissions and Financial Aid
Each of our graduate and professional programs has its own admissions process and requirements. To see specific requirements, please check with the appropriate department or program.
Graduate students are eligible for some merit based scholarships and fellowships. Applicants should check with specific programs for information about prerequisites, procedures and deadlines. Learn more about the graduate admissions process and graduate financial aid.
