Georgetown University has a well-deserved reputation for the outstanding quality of its curriculum and the fantastic overall educational experience it provides. Of course, the cost of tuition reflects that to a great extent, amounting to nearly $44,000 with books, supplies, and fees. Room and board tacks on another $13,000. At the same time, Georgetown meets 100 percent of student need; with an average financial aid package of $35,000, it is easy to see that a Georgetown education is still accessible to a large segment of potential students. Total need-based gift aid to freshmen tends to be approximately $28,000, providing even more support for needy undergrads. Students can envision a loan debt of about $28,000 once they graduate from the university.
