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 week from 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 90 minutes, are held in the Car Barn, which is located at 3520 Prospect Street, N.W., 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.

Note that registration opens 1 month before each information session.

Webinar Sessions

Admitted student webinars are hosted by a current graduate student and cover what it's like to be a graduate student at Georgetown. Admissions webinars cover the same content as an on-campus session: background about Georgetown, the application process, financial aid, and some discussion of student life. Webinars will last about 30 minutes, with a 20-25 minute presentation followed by questions. (Due to technical limitations, these sessions are capped at 100 attendees.)
