First Year and Transfer J.D. Students
The information below is for students admitted as an incoming student to Georgetown Law for the 2019-20 academic year.
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid is required for all applicants (unless you're only seeking private loans - this is not common).
Use School Code G21075.
Your parents' information is NOT required here.
This step is required if you are a full-time JD applicant and wish to apply for need-based grant assistance. Skip this step if you are a part-time applicant and/or only wish to apply for loans.
Parental information is required for all need-based grant aid applicants regardless of age or marital status. DO NOT send tax documents to Georgetown Law UNLESS you receive a tentative Georgetown Dean's Grant award.
See bottom of the page for additional information.
Use School Code 7306.
After you are admitted you can retrieve your GU Net ID credential from the Status Check Website.
*If you have any issues logging in, please contact the Office of Admissions at email@example.com
Once you have your Georgetown Net ID credential you can reset your temporary Georgetown password through Georgetown's Password Management System.
*If you have any issues, please contact the Office of Admissions at firstname.lastname@example.org
Following your admission, and based upon your student type, the Yellow Application asks the questions necessary for us to get you a Financial Aid award. Log in with your Net ID and the password you created in the steps above.
Step 6 - Award Notice
You should receive a tentative award notice via e-mail approximately three weeks after you complete all applicable steps above.
Carefully review this award notice and other included information.
You must complete (usually online) various requirements, for your student loans.
Please complete this step after June 1, but before July 15.
Georgetown Law will certify the loans during the summer and funds will arrive at the start of the semester.
Notify Georgetown Law what financial aid you wish to ACCEPT from your award. You do this through our Blue Application. Please complete by July 15, 2019.
If your award contains a Dean's Tuition Grant, you should upload copies of all applicable 2017 federal tax documents (Foreign equivalent with translation) or IRS non-filing letter within the blue application for both yourself and your parents, unless otherwise waived, to confirm and disburse your award.
Additional Information for Need-Based Grant Applicants:
Georgetown Law requires parental information for all grant applicants, regardless of student age, marital status or financial independence. Students must provide information for each living parent, even if they are divorced, separated or were never married. Step-parent information is not required.
If you believe extraordinary circumstances prevent you from complying with these requirements, please contact the Office of Financial Aid in writing with an explanation. Exemptions are rarely granted.
If your parents are divorced, separated or were never married, one parent (it does not matter which one) may complete the Divorced/Separated Parent Information Worksheet and submit it in hard copy instead of the online form if desired.
In addition, if you or one or more of your parents own a business or farm, your application will not be considered complete without the submission of a completed Business/Farm Supplement.
