Pre-Orientation Programs

Applications for Fall 2023 Pre-Orientation Programs are now closed.

Pre-Orientation Programs at Georgetown University offer new first-year and transfer students a chance to connect with peers, faculty, and staff around a specialized topic before their first semester at Georgetown. Pre-Orientation participants are immersed in a smaller community even before New Student Orientation begins.
