Explanation of Fees

Tuition: GW Summer tuition does not include the cost of books. Additional tuition would apply to students taking more than the number credits listed. Additional lab fees may apply for some courses.

Application Fee: Non-refundable fee that covers application and visa processing.

Program Fee: Non-refundable fee that covers extracurricular programming, including off-campus trips and other professional, social and cultural events.

Student Association Fee: This fee pays for student access to on-campus facilities including the Lerner Health and Wellness Center, Gelman Library and the Marvin Center.

Housing: On-campus, shared housing is optional for the duration of the program specified. The General Study program cost estimate above is for one 6-week summer session (additional costs apply to students staying on campus for both sessions). Limited housing options are available in Session I.

Dining: Please note that GW does not have a traditional dining hall. This amount is an estimate of the cost of dining in Washington, D.C. for the duration of the program, and will not be charged to your student bill.

Health Insurance: Students requiring F-1 visa sponsorship must have health insurance that meets the minimum requirements mandated by the Department of State. All other GW-sponsored students will be automatically enrolled and billed for GW's 6-week summer health insurance plan. Review information on GW’s health insurance plan and the waiver process through Medical Services.

Withdrawals & Refunds

Tuition: On-campus courses dropped prior to the start of the session (before the first day of classes) will have 100% of the tuition charges refunded. Courses dropped during the first seven (7) calendar days of the session will have 85% of the tuition charges refunded. No tuition adjustments will be made for courses dropped thereafter.

Housing: Housing charges will be canceled for program withdrawals that are completed more than 15 days in advance of the start of the program. For program withdrawals thereafter, a $300 non-refundable housing deposit will be collected, in addition to the $300 non-refundable program and application fee.

Program and Application Fees: Program and application fees are nonrefundable.
