Alumni Course Audit Program

Alumni Course Audit Program

The Alumni Course Audit Program gives all GW alumni the benefit of attending a wide selection of GW courses on a not-for-credit basis.  The program is available to GW alumni of all ages and local residents 60 years of age and older who live in the neighborhoods surrounding GW's Foggy Bottom and Mount Vernon campuses - specifically zip codes 20037 and 20006.  The Alumni Course Audit program is a rewarding way to enhance professional skills, increase knowledge and pursue a commitment to lifelong learning.

"I can interact with people in the boardroom and then I can go sit with musicians and speak that language. I attribute a lot of that to the broad-based education I got at GW." Read more
