Financial Aid

To be considered for financial aid, you must apply and be admitted to Georgetown University in Qatar. The GU-Q Financial Aid Office will assess your financial need based on your completed CSS application. Families are required to contribute to the greatest extent possible according to their financial ability, and GU-Q Financial Aid will cover the remaining financial need. While assessing financial need we consider annual direct costs (billed by GU-Q) like tuition, books, university fees and insurance as well as indirect estimated costs such as housing, meals and other personal expenses, based on the residency status of the applicant. GU-Q expects a minimum family contribution of $1,000 regardless of family income.

Complete the CSS profile and submit all required supporting documentation. The CSS code for Georgetown University in Qatar is 4563. The list of required documents is applicable to all non-US citizens.

In addition to a CSS profile, U.S citizens must complete FAFSA. The FAFSA code for Georgetown University is 001445. U.S citizens need to only upload tax returns as listed in IDOC.

Incomplete or delayed submission of the CSS application (including all required documentation) will delay the financial aid award. You’ll need to reapply for financial aid every year.

After you complete the CSS application, you will receive a link to IDOC, a secure documentation portal where all the documents should be uploaded.

The CSS application fee is $25. If your financial circumstances make it difficult to pay, please contact the GU-Q Financial Aid Office.

When you note in CSS the current relationship of your parents, a link to a new CSS profile will be sent to your non-custodial parent (NCP) to complete. To ensure fair treatment of all students, it is mandatory to complete the NCP CSS profile even if the non-custodial parent does not provide any support for the student. The student and the custodial parent do not have access to the NCP profile.

In situations where it is impossible to contact the non-custodial parent, please contact the GU-Q Financial Aid Office.

In addition to a CSS profile, US citizens need to complete FAFSA. We will review students eligibility for GU-Q grants, as well as federal funds. To find out more about FAFSA and aid available to US citizens (such as Parent Plus Loan), please click here.

Qatari citizens can apply for the Ministry of Education and Higher Education Scholarship. For sponsorship opportunities available to students, please visit our sponsorship page.

The FAFSA and CSS profile deadline for freshmen is April 30, 2021. The FAFSA and CSS application deadline for returning students is June 30, 2021. You’ll need to reapply for financial aid every year.

The earlier you submit a completed financial aid application and provide all required documentation, the sooner you can have a decision about your financial aid eligibility. This gives you more time to decide if the next years at Georgetown will be financially feasible for you and your family.

Yes, we require official translations of all documents that are not in English or Arabic.

Students can apply their financial aid (GU-Q grant or QF Student Fund Scholarship) towards the study abroad tuition and fees for only one term if they are approved to study abroad. GU-Q need-based grant can be applied towards study abroad fees only at the GU-Main campus for one semester. QF scholarship funds can be used for GU approved study abroad programs in any location, for one semester. Please inform the GU-Q Financial Aid Office if you are considering studying abroad.

After completing the CSS application and submitting all required documentation, the GU-Q Financial Aid Office will process your financial aid award. For incoming students, we will release the decisions as soon as possible to allow you to make an informed decision at the time of deposit and enrollment confirmation deadline. We encourage you to submit all required documentation in a timely manner.

As for returning students, you will receive an email notification when aid is available with links to your financial aid award letter

The GU-Q Financial Aid Office is teleworking to promote social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
