Here at GW, we operate on a more decentralized structure; therefore each of our nine schools has its own Office of Graduate Admissions. If you have questions about the graduate admissions process, we strongly suggest you contact your Office of Graduate Admissions.
Military personnel who have been on active duty within the past three years are eligible for an application fee waiver.
To learn more, visit the GW Graduate and Professional students website.
If you are in the DC area, the Graduate Student Enrollment Management office provides tours every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 12:30 pm sharp.
Office of Undergraduate Admissions Point of Contact

For undergraduate applicants: Yes, you will need to pay the application fee.
For graduate applicants: Military personnel who have been on active duty within three years of submitting their application for admission are eligible to receive an application fee waiver. To receive the application waiver, please contact the admissions office of the school/college to which you are applying.
Tuition deposits are eligible for refund. For students who are Yellow Ribbon eligible this deposit will be refunded once the account has been paid in full by the Post 9/11 GI Bill and Yellow Ribbon if applicable. We can not refund deposits until AFTER the Post 9/11 GI Bill pays your tuition.
Once student veterans are admitted to GW, we recommend they follow this checklist.
