Georgetown University’s mission is to help make it financially possible for each and every admitted applicant to afford his or her education. The college is committed to meeting 100% of each undergraduate’s demonstrated financial need.
In order to be considered for financial aid at GU, students must first submit a FAFSA and CSS profile. Students will be considered for a variety of need-based scholarships along with federal, state, and university grants. In order to locate additional non-Georgetown funding to help pay for school, GU encourages students to conduct outside scholarship search
Some continuing students may be eligible to receive a loan through the Georgetown loan program. GU also provides information on searching for private loans in case students need additional help in addition to federal loans. Students with financial need may also be eligible for federal work study (FWS) to help pay for their education. Additionally, the Student Employment Office offers employment referral services for students who are ineligible to receive FWS. Students may find on and on-campus non-work-study jobs to help supplement the cost of their education.
Students with special circumstances can also find help paying for college. The Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) provides tuition assistance and benefits to eligible employees and their children.
Veteran students can seek personalized assistance through the GU Veterans Office. Georgetown also offers students the opportunity to apply to be a resident assistant. With this role, students receive resident assistant benefits, including food and room costs. If you are looking to study abroad, Georgetown can help you coordinate your financial aid to meet this goal.
GU also offers a Tuition Insurance option to its students. This program is optional and basically extends the length of the refund policy for students and their families in case of sudden illness or accident.
If your financial situation changes, GU will re-evaluate your financial aid package.
Georgetown University’s financial literacy program, Common $ense, aims to empower Georgetown students with the resources they need to successfully manage their money. The program began as a financial literacy series in 2006 and has evolved into a nationally ranked student led, student driven money management initiative.
Common $ense’s website provides students access to custom personal finance guides about topics such as budgeting, saving, investing, debt management, taxes and finances after college. All guides are created by the student team at Common $ense and provide tips and examples that are specific to the financial goals of college students. The website also offers a page dedicated to helping students save money while at Georgetown, with tips and tricks specific to the university and other opportunities in the Washington DC area.
In addition to the extensive online resources that Common $ense offers, students can also attend workshops throughout the year, which are led by professors from the business school, financial literacy experts, and local alumni. Many of these workshops are recorded and later shared on the Common $ense YouTube channel. Common $ense also offers students the opportunity to meet with peer advisors if they are struggling with their financial aid process. They also partner with other campus organizations, such as New Student Orientation, to develop events throughout the year.
