Register for Summer Courses
We encourage you to consult with your advisor prior to making course selections.
In addition to on-campus course offerings, some online courses, summer abroad programs and summer institutes may satisfy major requirements.
Visiting (non-degree) students and professionals are eligible to take GW summer courses, but must first apply as a non-degree student.
Once the registration period is open and you are enrolled as a non-degree student, you may use your GWID to register for summer courses through the GWeb Information System.
Visiting students are advised to check home institution policies concerning the transferability of GW course credits before registering. If your home institution requires a syllabus to transfer a course, please contact the department in which the course is offered.
Review additional details about summer registration from the Office of the Registrar.
GW degree students interested in summer courses at a consortium school must enroll through GW to receive credit at GW.
Exceptions must be made in advance by the student's dean's office.
All consortium registration requests and program adjustments (Add/Drop) must be processed in person through the Office of the Registrar.
