Application Forms for School Counselors and Teachers

Our application includes online forms for teacher and counselor reports which are automatically sent once the applicant enters you as a recommender. While we do have paper-based forms, our preferred way to receive counselor and teacher reports is through our online application. We require that students request express permission from our office to submit paper-based forms. 

Exploring Options for Admissions Presentation & Campus Visits

GU-Q offers many types of programs (on campus or at the school) to engage both counselors and students. Please contact us to schedule a visit.

We also meet with students individually and conduct online workshops to provide information regarding our programs and application requirements. To see the opportunities available, check out the Connect With Us section of our website.

Advanced and Transfer Credit

The Office of Admissions does not make decisions regarding how much credit is granted to students for advanced/transfer credit. After decisions are released, the Office of Admissions forwards transcripts of admitted students to the Office of Curricular and Academic Advising for review, at which point the Office of Curricular and Academic Advising will determine how much advanced/transfer credit students will receive. 

For general guidance and more information on the advanced credit and how they count for the Georgetown degree, please see the advanced credit section of the undergraduate bulletin. If you have questions regarding advanced or transfer credit, please direct them to this email.
