Grad2Grad is an opportunity for current GW undergraduate students to transition straight into graduate studies after earning their bachelor's degree.

Qualified candidates receive a 10% tuition reduction while pursuing an eligible GW master's degree or graduate certificate. Most participating programs also waive standardized tests such as the GRE.


If you plan to complete or already finished your degree in 2022 or 2023, you qualify for the Grad2Grad program as long as you immediately enroll in a graduate program (master's or graduate certificate program).

If you graduated in 2022 you must have enrolled no later than Spring 2023 and if you are graduating in 2023 you must enroll no later than Spring 2024. 

Note: To maintain eligibility, you must be continuously enrolled for all semesters until the degree is earned. Summer registration is allowed but not required.
