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.
