GW Pre-College Program Response to COVID-19

We hope you all remain healthy and safe during these unprecedented times. We have made the very difficult decision to cancel all Summer Exposure and Summer Immersion residential programs for the health and safety of all members of the GW community. However, we will be offering the College Intensive program online.

"The program was really very enriching because it allowed me to learn a lot of new things and also because of the availability of resources that we had on campus. It was also very enriching in the sense that you got to interact with a lot of new people from all around the world."
