All GW Alumni are eligible to participate (that is anyone who took at least 15 full credits at GW). Former and current staff, faculty, or medical residents are not eligible to audit, unless they are a graduate of the George Washington University. Current graduate students are not eligible, unless they are already are alumni of GW. If an alumnus/a is in a current graduate program he/she must get a memo from the dean of his/her program stating that the class being audited will not be used for the degree program in which he/she is enrolled. Local Foggy Bottom Seniors (ages 60 and above) are also eligible to participate if they live in zip codes 20006 or 20037.
After your registration has been officially completed by the Registrar, you will receive an email from our office explaining that your registration is confirmed. About 24 hours after you are officially registered you will have access to Blackboard.
You will be charged when you register using the online form. At the end of part one of registration, you will be asked to pay for your course. We will not register you officially until payment is accepted. If you choose to pay by check, you may mail a check to Office of Alumni Relations, 2100 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Fourth Floor, Washington, DC 20052, but this may add another 5–7 business days to the processing time of your registration. If we do not receive payment within two weeks of your submission of registration, we will not register you for the course.
If you need a receipt, please email email@example.com and the coordinator will email you a receipt of the charge. If you are having someone else pay for you, please make a note of that on your online form or email us that you are doing so. This way we will not postpone sending in your registration form.
If you need to withdraw from the course and receive a refund you may do this within the first two weeks of each semester. If it is past this date, you cannot receive a refund and it is under the discretion of the program coordinator in the case of extenuating circumstances as to whether or not you may receive a partial refund.
If your course is waitlisted, you must wait three weeks and resubmit your registration. We cannot override a waitlisted course. If we see during registration that your course is waitlisted, we will send you an email explaining the resubmission process and asking if you would like to enroll in an alternate course. If you are not interested in another course, we will withdraw your registration and give you a refund, or resubmit your forms on the later date. If we resubmit your forms and your registration is not approved due to capacity limitations, then you cannot attend the class anymore. If you are taking a CCE course and the alumni auditor limit (two per class) has been met or the class has been cancelled, we will let you know by email.
If the course in which you are interested is closed, we will let you know. Courses can be closed even if permission has been granted by the professor at an earlier date, due to capacity limitations. If you have already paid, then we will give you a refund. We will be happy to help you find another course if this is the case.
