Non-GW students are eligible to apply and will be enrolled as a GW student during the semester they participate in the Short-Term Abroad Programs.  Students from the Washington, DC Consortium Schools and GW Alumni are eligible to participate in Short-Term Abroad Programs. However, alumni & students from consortium area schools must pay the full program fee, including tuition. Students must register through the Office for Study Abroad and not through the consortium. 

Students who are GW employees are eligible to participate in Short-Term Abroad programs, and their tuition benefits are handled accordingly through Student Accounts. However, GW employees must pay full program fees for costs not associated with tuition. GW employees are responsible for contacting the GW Benefit Services office to determine their eligibility for tuition benefits. 

Upon acceptance into the program, students will be asked to submit a non-refundable $500 Program Deposit within 5 business days.  Regarding payment for course, students will be responsible to submit payment to GW for all "Billable" items.  "Non-billable" items are out-of-pocket costs that the student will incur.  See the program "Cost Estimate" for more information about fees.
