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 and our limited ability to offer on-campus programs, among other considerations, the difficult decision has been made to discontinue all Pre-College and International Summer Programs for Summer 2021. It is our hope that we will be able to bring back these programs in the future and continue to provide the unique learning opportunities and experiences that can only be had at GW.
