Graduating GW Students

Summer Academy: Explained

Timing: Summer Session I (May 22-July 1, 2017)

Course: Students will work with the program to enroll in a course that satisfies a degree requirement. Most students will enroll in foundational pre-requisite courses such as MATH 1220, 1231, 1232 or ECON 1001, 1011, 1012, however, other required courses are eligible. The course must be pre-approved by the program to qualify for the scholarship.

Seminar & Success Coaching: In weekly group and individual settings, Summer Academy participants build successful habits and learn how to succeed inside and outside of the classroom. Students will hone their academic skills, develop leadership potential and build connections to the GW community as they continue on their path toward graduation.

Tutoring & Supplemental Instruction: Each student will have access to tutoring and additional campus resources to ensure success in the summer course and beyond.

Outreach: Each student will participate in outreach activities that help connect students with the larger GW community.

Housing: While we encourage Summer Academy participants to live in campus housing, it is not a requirement of the program. On-campus housing costs will be covered for a limited number of Summer Academy participants who qualify. Funding is based on a student’s financial need, and typically is awarded to students with an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of $15,000 or less. Students interested in being considered for the housing allowance should indicate their interest on the confirm interest form. 


Costs

The costs of the course, weekly seminar, individualized coaching, tutoring and supplemental instruction will be covered by the program. Students will be responsible for course materials, food, travel and housing costs if they are not awarded the housing allowance. Additional expenses incurred for non-Summer Academy activities are the responsibility of the student.
