What is non-degree seeking status?

Non-degree enrollment status is designed for students who wish to take courses but are not currently in pursuit of a degree at GW. Non-degree status includes those students who have been admitted to GW for a future semester. Non-degree students do not earn certificates or degrees from GW, but can take courses for a grade, earn credit, and those grades and credits will become part of an official academic record at GW. 

When is the application deadline?

There are no application deadlines for applying for non-degree status.  However, the number of non-degree students eligible to enroll in a particular semester may be limited, and registering after the first day of the semester will incur a late registration fee.

What are the minimum requirements?

Applicants must have at minimum a high school diploma and good academic standing at their home institution.  International applicants whose native language is not English or are not a citizen of a country where English is the official language, must submit official scores from either the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).  The minimum scores required are:

 

  • 600 on the paper-based TOEFL, or

  • 100 on the Internet-based TOEFL, or

  • an overall band score of 7.0 on IELTS, with no individual score below 6.0

 

English language test scores (TOEFL and IELTS) may not be more than two years old.

 

Exceptions may be made for applicants who hold a degree from a high school or university located in a country in which English is the official language and also the language of instruction at the school or university. In addition, exceptions may be made for applicants who have taken standardized tests such as the SAT or GRE.  Please contact our office for further information.

 

Though references, standardized test scores, and transcripts are not required for all non-degree applicants for “General Study,” they may be requested in certain cases. Special programs may have additional requirements. 

Which courses can I take?

A variety of courses, including online courses, are open to non-degree students at GW’s Foggy Bottom, Mount Vernon, and Virginia Science & Technology campuses, as well as other off-campus locations and contracted sites. Please visit the schedule of classes for up to date information.

What are the current tuition and fees?

Non-degree students are charged on a per credit basis.  For current rates please visit Colonial Central.

Is financial aid available?

Financial aid is not available to non-degree seeking students.

Can I audit a class?

Non-degree students are allowed to audit classes.  Normal tuition rates still apply to audited classes.   Students who audit a class are not allowed to take the class at a later date for credit.

 

I am a GW Alumni, what options are available to me as a non-degree student?

GW Alumni can take classes for credit through the Office of Non-Degree Students (full tuition and fees apply) or take classes on an audit basis only through the Alumni Course Audit Program.  Please contact the Alumni Office for further information.

Are earned credits transferable?

Grades and credits earned in non-degree status will become part of an official academic record at GW. Before applying for non-degree status, you should review your home institution’s policies to ensure the course will be eligible to transfer. Also, non-degree students interested in transferring GW courses to a degree program at GW should contact the major department for transfer credit policies.  Upon completion students may request an official transcript.

How do I find more information about a course?

You can find faculty and departmental contact information on their department website in the GW directory or in the University Bulletin.
