Undergraduate Admissions

The Columbian College of Arts and Sciences is at the heart of the George Washington University experience. Every graduate of GW takes classes in Columbian College. We are the foundation of a GW education.

We encourage you to meet with the GW admissions officers who travel to your area. Please visit our campuses, ask questions of our faculty and students and talk with your guidance counselor to learn as much as you can about GW and Columbian College. We know you will find that GW is a dynamic and extraordinary University.

How to Apply

GW accepts the Common Application which must be submitted electronically through the Common Application website.  Once you have applied, you will be able to check the status of your application by creating an account on the GW Admissions Activity Center.
