Georgetown MSFS remains open and dedicated to excellence in providing key services to our community. But, in response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and the decision to shift to a virtual environment, we have decided to suspend all on-site class visits and information sessions. Email MSFS to be connected to an MSFS representative to answer your questions: firstname.lastname@example.org. Available 9:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. ET Monday–Friday.
We welcome prospective students to visit MSFS for a virtual information session, or to sit in an online class (arranged by the MSFS Admissions Office). Since we cannot accommodate in-person visits at this time, please schedule your visit using the options below.
Virtual Information Sessions
Virtual Information Sessions are held on Fridays. Hear from an MSFS admissions representative to learn more about the Georgetown MSFS program and application process.
Register for the Friday session at 12:00 p.m. EST.
