The Fall 2018 immigration document request process has closed and OGS is no longer issuing documents. On October 15, 2018, updated information will be available to new students admitted for Spring 2019.

OGS only processes immigration documents for international students who are fully admitted to Georgetown University. If you are a prospective student seeking admission to the university, please contact the appropriate admissions office to apply for a particular academic program.
