About The George Washington University

The George Washington University (GW), located in Washington DC, places the University at the core of US government, policy, and law. GW students and faculty have the unparalleled opportunity to study and work alongside leaders and practitioners in every discipline, to take part in the interchanges that shape the community and the world.

As one of the nation's first major universities to launch online programs, GW provides students from all backgrounds — and all locations around the world — with the highest quality online educational opportunities.

The GW Commitment

GW strives to provide an environment where knowledge is created and acquired and where creative endeavors seek to enrich the experiences of the global society. With 10 schools and colleges and nearly 100 research centers and institutes, students receive hands-on experience as they explore nearly any avenue of personal interest.

The depth and breadth of GW's academic programs, the exceptional qualifications of full-time faculty, the unmatched experiences of adjunct faculty, and the strengths of GW's research initiatives allow students, faculty, and staff to look at the world beyond the classroom. They allow GW to prepare the next generation of leaders.

Online Student Experience

At the start of their online program, students will be assigned an academic advisor who is here to support their journey with the George Washington University (GW). They will be here to answer any questions and to assist students from start to finish, scheduling classes and addressing any other needs along the way.

During a virtual new student orientation course, students will learn what to expect on a daily basis and how to interact with the online learning platform used for all courses.

GW's online programs are designed to give students the flexibility to accomplish their work on their own time, wherever is most convenient, without interfering with their other professional commitments. That means students can maintain balance with their current job, while applying lessons and adding value to their role.
