Any Seniors Interested in GW?

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions invites you to apply to Your GW, an overnight program celebrating diversity and inclusion.

This great opportunity allows high school seniors to experience what GW, and D.C., have to offer firsthand by staying on our campus with current students. While on campus, attendees will learn about the resources available to support our students, become well versed in GW's admissions process, and engage in conversation around identity and multiculturalism with members of our community.

This year we're excited to offer a two-night program in September and a one-night program in October. Students accepted to Your GW are expected to participate in the full duration of the program and will stay overnight in a GW residence hall with a student host.

Your GW Dates

SEPTEMBER
Saturday, September 22 – Monday, September 24
Application Deadline: August 1

OCTOBER
Sunday, October 28 – Monday, October 29
Application Deadline: September 15

How to Apply

To apply for the program, students must complete the following:

1. Submit the Your GW application, which includes an essay of 500 words or less responding to one of the following questions:
  • All kinds of diversity are wholeheartedly embraced at GW. What is your definition of diversity and what role has it played in your academic journey?
  • This fly-in program is designed for you to get to know GW, but we also hope that you will learn a lot about yourself throughout the process. What excites you most about the prospect of self-discovery in college?
2. Send a high school transcript (an unofficial copy is acceptable) to admevents@gwu.edu.

Travel Grant

GW will offer a limited number of travel grants to assist well-qualified students in attending the event.
If you have any questions, please contact us at admevents@gwu.edu.

Okay, Seniors...Here We Go!

Beginning this week, your students can apply to The University of Alabama for 2019. The application is available online at apply.ua.edu.
Students will need to submit the application for admission, application fee or fee waiver, a copy of their official test scores and their official high school transcript. For 2019 applicants, as soon as their application is complete and we have received all required documents, we will review their application and make a decision.
We realize many of you are working reduced hours over the summer months and transcripts for rising seniors may not be available until their senior schedule is finalized. After the student has applied, they will receive an email listing any remaining documents needed to complete their application. Students will not be penalized if the transcript isn’t received until your school resumes normal operating hours.
The University of Alabama has also made several changes to our scholarship awards for the 2019 academic year. To view these changes, please visit scholarships.ua.edu. An additional change for 2019 is students must be admitted to The University of Alabama by December 15, 2018 to access our scholarship application and apply for scholarships.
We hope the early application review and scholarship changes will be beneficial to your students. If you or your students have any questions about the admission process to UA, please visit viewbook.ua.edu or contact your recruiter.
