Application Fee: Non-refundable fee that covers application and visa processing.

Program Fee: Non-refundable fee that covers extracurricular programming, including off-campus trips and other professional, social and cultural events.

Student Association Fee: This fee pays for student access to on-campus facilities including the Lerner Health and Wellness Center, Gelman Library and the Marvin Center.

Review information on GW’s health insurance plan and the waiver process through Medical Services.

Visa Requirements for International Summer

International Summer programs are open to international undergraduate and graduate students who require visa sponsorship. Those who do not require visa sponsorship should contact us to find out more about program options.

F-1 Visa Process

To study full time at GW during the summer, international students must have an F-1 student visa. Full-time enrollment is defined as registration for a minimum of 6 credits for undergraduates or 3 credits for graduates in one 6-week summer session.

For Students Requiring Sponsorship

GW will sponsor student visas for full-time study in the General Study or Research Experience programs. If you are receiving GW sponsorship for the F-1 student visa, you must document that you have sufficient funds to support your studies in order to receive an I-20 form, by submitting the Visa Application and Financial Certificate (PDF). This I-20 form must be submitted with your visa application to the U.S. Consulate.

For Students with Sponsorship by Other Universities

Students who are enrolled in another US university program on an F-1 visa in spring, and who will continue studying at that same university in fall, can study at GW on their current F-1 visa. Students in this situation are eligible to study full time or part-time.

Current F-1 students whose I-20s will expire or whose college/university programs will end before enrolling in the International Summer program must obtain an I-20 from GW for their summer study.

B-1 & B-2 Visa Process

Students may not study under a visitor immigration classification if their main purpose for being in the country is to study at the George Washington University for the summer. If travel or tourism is the predominant reason for temporarily residing in the U.S., students may take one summer course. However, it is recommended that all students study full-time under the F-1 student status.

Other Visas (J-1, H-1, H-4, etc.)

If you are currently in the U.S. in a different non-immigrant category you may be eligible to take summer courses at the George Washington University depending on your immigration status.

If you have any questions about your immigration status, please contact us; we're happy to help.
