Georgetown University

Georgetown University is located on an urban campus in Washington,  DC. It has around 7,000 undergraduate students, about 15% of whom are from other countries, and accepts approximately 14% of applicants.

The SAT or ACT is required at Georgetown for international students. Competitive scores* range from 1380 to 1550 on the SAT and from 31 to 35 on the ACT. The minimum TOEFL score for admission is 100.

Georgetown meets a few** international students’ full need with financial aid and is need-blind in admissions for international students (those who request financial assistance are not less likely to be admitted). The average financial-aid award for international students is approximately US$64,000 per year. Georgetown does not offer merit-based scholarships to international students.

* Half of admitted students score within this range. Twenty-five percent of students score below it and 25 percent score above it.

** Although it is need-blind for international students, Georgetown provides financial aid to very few international students who are admitted.
