The campus community at GW is diverse and our students’ backgrounds vary. They come from all over the world and across the country with different life experiences and family histories. We welcome and encourage this diversity and are excited about the knowledge and perspective that it adds to the campus experience.
Comprised of members from across the university, our Task Force on Access and Success looks for opportunities to bring students of diverse backgrounds to GW because we don’t want financial background to be a limiting factor in coming here. We encourage students to attend by providing support, financial resources and information on programs that help finance a GW education. Once you're a Colonial, we work with you to ensure academic success. In addition to a recent move to a test-optional application policy, the university participates in a number of initiatives and partnerships to bring the best and brightest students from all backgrounds to GW.
