Welcome international students and scholars!

International students, faculty, and researchers are an integral part of the Georgetown University community. Georgetown's international character is a point of pride for the university and a major element of its diversity. Over 2,500 individuals from more than 130 countries study, research, and teach at Georgetown. The Office of Global Services provides a wealth of services to this community, including immigration advising and cultural and educational programming.

International students and scholars are invited to contact OGS in the following ways:

Appointments: Appointments are made for specific times with specific advisors. If your discussion involves changing status, extensions, a reduced courseload, or any other complex situation, please make an appointment online.

Walk-in Advising Schedule: Walk-in consultations are for quick 10-15 minute discussions on student issues. Scholars may use this time to request travel signatures. Assistance provided on a first-come-first-served basis with the IS Advisor on duty. New students should use the walk-in advising time for their immigration document review.
