Georgetown College welcomes students from other countries both as part of its formal exchange programs and on an individual basis. In order to be considered for admission, international applicants who are applying as first-time freshmen must submit an official transcript and one of the following test scores: TOEFL, IELTS, SAT, or ACT. Georgetown’s minimum TOEFL score is 520 (paper)/190 (computer)/68 (internet). The minimum IELTS score for admission is a 6.0. International students transferring from another college or university within the U.S. must submit official transcripts from all previous colleges/universities attended. If the student has attempted less than 24 credit hours in college work, they must submit high school transcripts and test scores (TOEFL, IELTS, SAT, or ACT).
Upon acceptance to the College, all international students must submit a $1,000 enrollment deposit prior to the issuance of immigration paperwork. This deposit is kept on the student’s account in case of emergencies while the student studies at Georgetown and is credited to the student’s last term at Georgetown College. The international deposit is refundable, less any transaction fees, if the student is denied a visa. In order to obtain a refund, the student must write a letter to the Dean of Admissions with proof of the visa denial. This letter must be received at least 30 days prior to the start of classes or the student will forfeit the deposit.
Health insurance is mandatory for all international students and is the financial responsibility of the student.
