Students must complete one year of study in the school to which they were admitted. Beyond the first year, students may apply to transfer at the conclusion of either the fall or spring semester.

To be eligible for internal transfer, students must be currently enrolled students in good academic and social standing and have completed a full time schedule in the most recent semester.

The outcome of your application will be based on your academic record at Georgetown, your transfer application essay, and the viability of the academic program you are proposing.


The College expects four semesters of full-time enrollment (at least four courses and 12 credits) in the College itself, exclusive of study in the SFS, MSB or NHS, summer school, and overseas study programs.

No more than six courses from the McDonough School of Business may be counted towards the degree.
