Non-GW Summer Abroad
In addition to the GW Short-Term Abroad programs offered in the summer, GW allows undergraduate students to choose to study abroad in the summer on other programs. Unlike study abroad during the academic year, GW does not keep a list of approved study abroad programs for the summer term. Rather, students may choose to study abroad on any accredited program. If you are a graduate student looking to study abroad in the summer on a non-GW program, please contact your school or department for instructions and further guidelines.
Several of GW's exchange partners offer summer abroad opportunities, providing GW students with inexpensive options to attend summer classes abroad, while earning academic credit. Students participating on one of these programs are exempt from paying tuition costs and are only billed by the host institution for a program fee, which includes housing. Final admission decisions rest with the individual partner institutions. Students will need to complete an application for the individual program to which they would like to apply; students can find this application through the individual links below.
Many of GW's exchange partners offer international summer sessions, which allow students to attend summer classes abroad while earning academic credit. Students will apply directly to the university for admission and be charged by the host university for tuition and room/board fees. Students will also need to complete a Non-GW Summer application for these programs.
Many of the program providers GW approves for semester and academic year study also offer summer programs, which you can access via the links below. Please note that this is not a comprehensive list of summer programs; you may choose to attend a program run by another study abroad program provider or another university. Be sure the program/university is accredited and will be able to issue a transcript in order to transfer credit from your summer abroad to GW. Students will need to complete a Non-GW Summer application for these programs.
