GW Summer Response to COVID-19

As The University continues to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic, the decision to protect public health and minimize risk will be our top priority. Based on the continuing impact of COVID-19, among other considerations, courses for Summer 2021 will continue with mainly a virtual operating status. A complete list of courses across disciplines for Summer 2021 can be found on the Registrar website

While we hope to bring back these programs in the future, the Pre-College and International Summer Programs have been discontinued for Summer 2021. Visiting students may enroll in GW summer courses as non-degree students. Please visit the Non-Degree website for more information. 

Additional information on the University's COVID Reponse can be found on the Campus Advisories website.

"The best part of this program is that it introduced me to many different fields. It taught me what I truly look forward to doing in life and it taught me what college will be like in the future."

"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."
