Online Learning at GW

We strive to offer students from all over the world access to the world-class faculty, pioneering research, and spirit of exploration that defines GW as a leading institution. Beyond that, we’re committed to supporting online students as they pursue their education and welcoming them to the GW academic community. Online students are connected to all of the resources available to our on-campus students, including:

  • Center for Career Services
    The center offers a wide range of individualized and customized career services, including a robust coaching program, convenient online resume and interview critique programs, and a wealth of diverse events and workshops targeted to the career needs of our students, including students with disabilities, military and veteran students, international students and alumni.
  • Division of Information Technology
    Supports students in the areas of accounts, email and calendar, network and internet access, web and collaboration, software and business apps, communications, backup and storage, research computing, and training. Students can also submit a tech service request.
  • GWiz
    The GWiz knowledge base is a resource that allows GW community members to access self-service knowledge about technology and assistance with the Division of IT’s services. You may browse the site’s categories for specific knowledge by using the “Select a Browse Category,” or search the entire database by doing a keyword search.
  • Gelman Library
    Offers complete digital library access. Online students can have items sent to their home. Articles can be kept and books can be renewed up to three times.
  • Writing Center
    The GW Writing Center offers students the opportunity to receive feedback from trained writing consultants, who can help with specific research or writing projects. Students enrolled in online programs at GW can schedule distance appointments that use videoconferencing and document-sharing features through Zoom. Schedule your appointment through mywconline. We recommend that online students set 50-minute appointments, to allow time for setting up the technology.
