As a Georgetown University Hoya, you’ll find yourself amidst an academic tradition that’s nearly as old as the United States. You’ll also be part of one of the most respected and well-known universities in the world, and a diverse student body of nearly 17,000 intellectually driven people.

About 50 undergraduate majors are available, as well as several areas of graduate study. Georgetown’s academics place an emphasis on studying abroad, offering many opportunities to do so. Approximately 60% of Georgetown students take advantage of these opportunities.
Georgetown’s location is one of its strongest features. The nation’s capital is packed with opportunities, and student life at Georgetown might include sampling the local music scene, catching a show at the National Theatre or working an internship at any number of businesses or government institutions.
Ability to pay tuition is not a factor in Georgetown’s undergraduate admissions. Because of this, the university pledges to meet its students’ demonstrated need through a variety of financial aid programs. Need-based financial aid is also available for graduate students, as well as merit scholarships, research assistantships and fellowships.
