Students Studying in their Home Country

International students wishing to either take courses in their home country during the summer or a semester must register their interest with the Office for Study Abroad and complete a registration process before they go abroad.

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.
