The English Language Center plans to resume in-person classes for the Fall term beginning in August 2021. All students attending classes in-person must be fully vaccinated, unless Georgetown has granted them a medical or religious exemption from the COVID-19 vaccination requirement. We will continue to monitor public health guidelines to ensure full safety and compliance. For more information, please refer to Georgetown’s resource page on COVID-19 vaccines.
To make applying as simple and straightforward as possible, we've put together a checklist of everything you need to complete your application. If you have any questions along the way, please contact guELC@georgetown.edu.

All applicants must have at least completed a bachelor’s degree, or are in the process of completing the final year of their undergraduate degree. Degrees from overseas universities must be accompanied by a transcript evaluation from a NACES-approved service.
Students may submit their transcript through the application portal, email it to guELC@georgetown.edu, or have their previous institution send an electronic transcript for the highest degree attained.
Requirements for Non-native English Speakers
Non-native English speakers without a degree from a university in an English-speaking country must submit their most recent official TOEFL or IELTS score. English proficiency will be confirmed prior to admission by interview and writing exam. The interview and exam will be conducted online.
Student visas are only available for the spring semester when one-week practicum sessions are available. Non-U.S. citizens who are not currently residing in the U.S. cannot attend Saturday on-campus practicum sessions in tourist status.
