Information Sessions

In addition to the information on our website, prospective students can participate in several different kinds of information sessions to learn more about the admissions process and the graduate programs offered at Georgetown.

On-campus Information Sessions

These sessions are typically offered every other Friday during the months of April through November. The on-campus visit consists of a presentation and a campus tour conducted by a graduate admissions officer. This is a great opportunity to see the university, learn more about our programs and application process and as well as graduate student life.

Sessions, which last approximately 60 minutes, are held in the Car Barn, which is located at 3520 Prospect St., in the Graduate School Conference Room located on the fourth floor.

When you enter the Car Barn, you will be on the fourth floor. Turn left when you enter and proceed through the building and past the elevator and exit onto the patio through the back doors. Continue across the patio and enter the Graduate School through the next set of doors. The Conference Room is located to the left at the very end of the hallway.

Directions to campus here.
