Admissions

As the oldest and largest school within Georgetown University, Georgetown College promotes an education of the whole person—mind, body, and spirit. Intellectual vitality, a global viewpoint, and a dedication to service are at the core of the College experience.


Applying to Georgetown College

Applicants should visit the Office of Undergraduate Admissions website for extensive application information and deadlines. When applying to the College, students choose one of three options:

  • Undeclared: Students who apply as undeclared majors will select a major at the end of their sophomore year. Students who have a strong interest in languages or sciences are encouraged to apply for those majors.
     
  • Faculty of Languages and Linguistics: The Faculty of Languages and Linguistics (FLL) is a unique program within the College with a special commitment to the study of linguistics and languages, literature, and cultures other than English. Majors in the FLL can be combined with any other majors and minors available to College students. Because language acquisition is a long commitment, we ask applicants to indicate their choice of major on their application. Students admitted to the FLL must enroll in a course in the major each semester of the first year.
     
  • Science and Mathematics: Students who wish to pursue a major in the sciences should choose their area of interest on their application. The computer science, mathematics, and physics departments offer both Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees. First-year coursework is identical for both degrees, and students will confirm which degree they wish to pursue at the end of their first year.

Students may also choose pre-medical studies in addition to any of the options above.


Optional Supplemental Materials: Music, Theater, Dance, and Studio Art
