If you're looking for assistance with your financial aid, bill, or registration, you've come to the right place. Our checklists will help you to navigate the registration and financial landscape at GW.

Each checklist outlines the basic steps for maintaining good financial and administrative standing while at GW, and will direct you to more detailed information to help you accomplish each step.

Suggestions for getting the most out of our checklists:

  1. Choose the right checklist! Many steps are specific to certain populations. You may even need to look at multiple checklists (for example, an international graduate student should look at both the Graduate Student checklist and International Student checklist).
  2. Read through the steps thoroughly and visit the links for more information. 
  3. Learn how to navigate the GWeb Information System (PDF) as it is where you will find your personalized financial aid, billing, and registration information.

Still have questions? We're here to help! Feel free to contact us in person at Colonial Central or via phone or email.
