Visiting Students

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.
