Petitioned Programs

Students interested in attending a program not on GW's list of approved study abroad programs may petition that program if they have a strong and clear argument about the unique academic reasons that the petitioned program meets their individual priorities.

The Office for Study Abroad maintains a list of approved study abroad programs for GW undergraduate students studying abroad for a semester or academic year. Over 200 programs in more than 50 countries are available for GW students. The list was compiled through faculty and professional staff review and is updated periodically.

Approved study abroad programs include GW’s four Study Programs in Chile, England, Madrid, and Paris; more than 30 GW Undergraduate Exchange Partners; and hundreds of Provider Programs administered by study abroad organizations such as Arcadia University’s College of Global Studies, CIEE, IES, SIT, and the Institute for Study Abroad at Butler University, among others.

The best way to view approved programs and search for programs that fit students' academic, cultural and personal interests is using GW Passport's Advanced Search feature. Below you can find a tutorial on how to conduct searches with this feature.
