Visiting MSFS

Prospective applicants are welcome to visit the school, attend information sessions, sit in on classes (arranged by the MSFS Admissions Office) and meet with current students. While we cannot accommodate drop-in visitors, there are various ways to arrange a visit to campus:

Information Sessions

Information sessions will be offered most Mondays at 4:00 p.m. and Fridays at 2:00 p.m., except during holidays.  The session (capped at five attendees) includes a brief presentation by an admissions representative and provides prospective students with an opportunity to ask any relevant questions they might have about the program. Prospective students should email MSFS at msfsinfo@georgetown.edu at least one week in advance of their visit to inquire about availability.

Class Visits

To schedule a class visit, please email msfsinfo@georgetown.edu and let us know what day you plan to visit campus. The MSFS Admissions Office will be happy to arrange for you to meet with an MSFS student and visit one of the classes. We ask that you provide us with at least a one-week notice to make arrangements.
