Your Student Services Coordinator is dedicated to providing you guidance throughout your tenure at GW. This person serves as a resource designed to assist you in navigating university policies and procedures and connecting you directly to all of your available resources.

In addition, your Student Services Coordinator works in conjunction with your academic advisor to ensure you are optimizing your time here at GW.  Our team hosts a variety of social and academic programming to enhance your graduate student experience.
