3. Apply for Financial Aid.
Students in the School of Continuing Studies are registered with Georgetown University's Financial Aid Office and may be eligible for federal tuition assistance. To determine eligibility for financial aid, students must complete the following:
A. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Students can complete this form any time after January 1 for the upcoming year. Georgetown's Federal Student Aid school code is 001445.
Please note: To be eligible for Federal Student Aid, a student must be enrolled at least half-time, as defined by the program. Students who are admitted non-degree/provisionally to SCS are not eligible for Federal Student Aid, but they may be eligible for private educational loans. When a provisional student transitions to a degree-seeking status, the student may then be eligible for federal student loans. Not all SCS programs are eligible for Federal Student Aid.
B. Complete the SCS Supplemental Form for Financial Aid.
4. Obtain your student ID card: GOCard.
Credit Programs: All credit (degree) program students must have a valid student identification GOCard (“Georgetown One Card”). GOCard is required at all times during operating hours to ensure a safe learning environment. Students will swipe their GOCard each time they enter the building. After accepting your offer of enrollment, you will receive further instructions from your Program Manager or Director on how to obtain your GOCard.
CCPE Programs: Non-credit (CCPE) program students do not receive GOCards.
5. Ensure your immigration documentation is in order.
If you are NOT a United States citizen or a permanent resident, please be sure to complete all required steps for your immigration documentation as quickly as possible. This information is not applicable to U.S. citizens.
6. Contact your Admissions Advisor.
If you have any questions about the steps or resources listed on this page please feel free to contact your Admissions Advisor for assistance.
7. Review SCS's guide to moving to D.C.
SCS staff have compiled a guide with helpful information about Washington, D.C. metro area housing and transportation. Though non-exhaustive, the guide is a good place to start your housing search. Review the SCS Housing and Transportation Guide here, which includes information about temporary housing and hotel options.
