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.

Financial aid for graduate students is also available.
