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 site.

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 response can be found on the Campus Advisories website.

English for Academic Purposes

English for Academic Purposes (EAP) is designed for international students who speak English as a second or additional language to equip students with an academic skill set that will benefit both educational and professional aspirations. Undergraduate and Graduate students wishing to improve their English academic writing, research and communication skills are invited to enroll in EAP courses. 

Two EAP programs are offered during the Summer Term: Summer EAP for GW Degree-Seeking International Students and EAP for Visiting International Students.
