You will be able to view and pay your bill online via My Access. Please contact the Student Account Office for all billing concerns. Paper tuition bills are no longer generated or mailed.  Tuition is due mid-August. An exact due date will be on your bill.

After the April 15th deposit deadline, we will ask you to select a campus, Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC) or Georgetown Downtown (GTDT). We will honor your request if seats are available at that location.

If you are accepted after April 15th, you can request a campus using the link posted to the smp2024 google group titled – Select a SMP campus. You must pay your deposit prior to requesting a campus. If you request GTDT, we will let you know if the campus is full, or not. If you select GUMC, you will definitely get that campus.

View the BGE New Student Checklist for more information on health insurance, immunization, & Go Card (Student ID).

Amy Richards, Assistant Director, will register you for classes prior to orientation.

If you’ve had testing accommodations in the recent past, contact Amy Richards immediately, so she can get your information in the process. This needs to be done at least 3 weeks before orientation unless you’re accepted late.

If you are accepted and intend to attend the SMP, we strongly encourage you to apply to medical school for August 2024 matriculation before SMP orientation. You should have your AMCAS application in since you are actively working to improve your application by attending the SMP. The program faculty and staff will be working with you throughout the application cycle. Please see our AMCAS page for additional information.

There will be very few exceptions, and if you are not applying this year. Please contact us prior to orientation if you need an exception. The reasons should not include your undergraduate academic record. You would not be accepted to the SMP if we didn’t think you had great potential!
