Financing a GW Education
Traditionally, the financing of a college education is the responsibility of the family. The George Washington University realizes that the cost of a GW education may exceed what a family can contribute. In such cases, GW provides a wide range of financial assistance programs to help a family finance the cost of a GW education.

The financial assistance programs at The George Washington University are designed to assist you and your family with financing the total cost of attending our institution. This includes grants, scholarships, loans, college work-study, and outside resources such as veteran's benefits, tuition benefits, and activity awards. Through a combination of federal and institutional financial assistance, we hope to assist you in bridging the gap between what your family can contribute and the total cost of attending The George Washington University.
The processing of aid for students enrolled in Distance Education (DE) programs is based on current federal regulations. The cost of attendance component for DE students includes tuition, fees, books and supplies (living expenses are not included).
