Attend one of our virtual informational events to learn more about the M.S. in Physiology at Georgetown and our admissions process.
Applicants have the choice to apply through the Georgetown Graduate Application Portal or the Post Baccalaureate Centralized Application Service (PostbacCAS). Please do not submit applications to both.
- Georgetown Graduate Application Portal: This application is recommended for students who are interested in Georgetown graduate programs.
- PostbacCAS: This application is recommended for students who are applying to multiple programs through PostbacCAS.
GeorgeSquared students may choose to apply by May 1 for Summer admission, July 1 for Fall admission, or November 1 for Spring admission.
Applications are reviewed on a rolling, space-available basis. Early applications are strongly encouraged. International applicants in particular are encouraged to apply by the May 15 priority deadline to allow sufficient time to apply for a U.S. visa. We will accept applications until July 1 or until our Fall cohort is filled, whichever comes first.
Applications should be submitted and complete (i.e., all materials received) by the deadline. Applications that are submitted but not complete by the deadline (missing transcripts and/or letters of recommendation) will be reviewed as space permits. Once an application becomes complete (all materials received, including transcripts and letters of recommendation), the application will be reviewed by the admissions committee. We strive to return decisions within four weeks of an application becoming complete.
Applications for Biomedical Graduate Education’s merit-based scholarships are due two weeks after your application submission date. Scholarship applications are reviewed on a rolling basis and awarded subject to funding availability; therefore, we encourage applicants to apply by the priority deadline.
Applicants are to submit all required credentials and supporting documentation no later than the application deadlines listed above. Applications are reviewed on a rolling, space-available basis.

Please note that the visa application process can take weeks or months and varies based on your country of origin. To help ensure that students receive their visas in time for registration, the program suggests that applications to the program should be completed by the May 15 priority deadline. In the event that visas are not received in time, students may defer their admission and delay their arrival to the following fall term with no additional charge.
For more information for international applicants, please see our Biomedical Graduate Education International Applicants page.
International applicants interested in pursuing medical school in the U.S. should carefully read the AAMC’s website regarding the limitations and restrictions for international students in the medical school admissions process.
Full-time students pay a flat tuition fee; part-time students pay per credit hour. Visit Tuition & Fees for more information.
Georgetown University does not offer tuition waivers or need-based grants for graduate education. Our program does not offer assistantships. Due to the rigor and intensive nature of the program, we strongly discourage students from attempting to work part-time during the program.
Need-based financial aid is available in the form of federal and private loans. It is recommended that you begin the process of applying for financial aid as soon as you are accepted. Generally, graduate students take out loans to cover the full cost of tuition and living expenses for the full year of the program. You may use the Estimated Cost of Attendance information in determining federal loan amounts; this program falls under Biomedical Graduate Education > Biomedical Graduate Programs (as opposed to the Special Master’s Program).
Students who have been accepted to the GeorgeSquared summer cohort and are applying for financial aid will also need to fill out a Georgetown University Graduate Summer Aid Application, which can be found at the bottom of the applying for financial aid page.
Note: Financial aid for students in our program is under the purview of the Main Campus Office of Student Financial Services – not the School of Medicine office. If you have filled out financial aid forms for Georgetown University School of Medicine, you must also fill out the Main Campus forms. Otherwise, your financial aid could be seriously delayed.
For more information and to obtain financial aid forms, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Two significant merit-based Biomedical Graduate Education scholarship opportunities are available to high-achieving applicants: the Hoyas for Science Scholarship and the Ignatian Hoya Biomedical Academic Scholarship. Note that you must apply for these scholarships by two weeks after you submitted your application (i.e., the date on which you submitted through the online portal and paid the application fee).
