The Graduate School accepts applications for designated degree and certificate programs through a secure, electronic submission process. An online application and recommendation system accepts all required application materials, except for official transcripts and official test scores.
Official transcripts are prepared by academic institutions and mailed either directly to our office or to you for self-assembly. Official test scores are sent to us directly from the appropriate testing organization via your request.
Before You Apply
- Use the Application Requirements Checklist to prepare your application for submission.
- Review the website information for your program of interest, including degree and certificate offerings, specific program admission requirements and application deadlines. All materials submitted in support of the application must be received by the published application deadline.
- Prepare to take required examinations at least one month prior to the application deadline. Request that test results be sent to Georgetown University via our institution code (ETS code: 5244. Department codes are not required).
- Request official transcripts from all schools attended. Ideally, official transcripts should be sent to you in sealed and signed envelopes prior to the application deadline. When you have received all official transcripts, self-assemble them unopened in a packet and mail them to the appropriate admissions office.
Tips for Submitting a Successful Online Application:
- DO self-assemble all hard copy official transcripts (if you have attended multiple institutions) and corresponding translations to be mailed to the appropriate admissions office. Self-assembly of these unopened documents will significantly speed up the processing time of your application. Please note that applications to multiple programs or dual programs require an official transcript for each degree program of application.
- DO review all application requirements for your program of interest. Some departments and programs may have application requirements in addition to standard Graduate School requirements. Please review the requirements of your program to make certain you fulfill all standard and supplemental admissions requirements and application deadlines. Official test scores must be requested from the appropriate testing organizations, if required. All required application materials must be received by the designated application deadline.
- DO NOT send paper copies of documents submitted online. Processing paper versions of electronic documents delays the processing of your application and the updating of your online application checklist. Copies of resumes on "resume paper" or printouts of writing samples are neither necessary nor desired. Transcripts are the only documents that should be submitted both within the online application and through the mail.
- DO NOT send items that are not required for the review of your application such as course completion certificates, CDs or books. Such items will not be included in your file.
- DO NOT send cash, foreign currency or wire transfers as a form of payment of the application fee. Only credit cards and electronic checks are acceptable forms of payment.

Check Receipt of Your Materials Online
When you apply online, you have convenient access to an electronic checklist detailing what application items have or have not been received. Your checklist is posted the day after you submit your application, and application items received are logged daily. Online recommendations are automatically updated to a status of "received" when submitted by the recommender.
During our high volume December-March application season, please allow up to two weeks for processing of your materials.
It is the responsibility of the applicant to make certain that all admission materials are received by the designated application deadline. Neither the Graduate School nor the departments can assume the responsibility of informing the applicant about erroneous or missing materials.
All materials (original, photocopied or electronic documents) submitted in support of an application become a part of Georgetown University application records and cannot be released to the student or a third party.
If application materials are forged, falsified or altered, the Graduate School will notify all relevant officials, including the individual or institution issuing the document(s) and, as appropriate, immigration officers. Submission of such materials will disqualify an applicant for admission.
