Registration

IMPORTANT NOTICE: GW requires all members of our community to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, including a booster shot, or have an exemption on file. To be fully vaccinated means completing your first booster five months after two doses of Pfizer or Moderna and two months after one dose of Johnson & Johnson. Students are not required to complete the second booster that is currently recommended for individuals over 50 or who are immunosuppressed. All students who plan to take at least one on-campus, in-person class on any of GW’s campuses in Fall 2022 must demonstrate compliance with GW’s vaccine requirement through the medical portal before they are permitted to register for these classes. Compliance with the vaccine requirement is fulfilled either by providing proof of full vaccination or being approved for a medical or religious exemption. 

All new, incoming first-year students must upload their vaccine documentation by July 1. If you are not in compliance with GW’s vaccine and booster requirement by July 1, you will not be able to move into your residence halls and will not be able to register for fall classes on your designated registration day.  

The Records & Registration unit of the Office of the Registrar is part of the Student Services Hub, GW's one-stop shop for Financial Services, the Registrar, and Veteran Services. We are centrally located on the ground floor of the University Student Center, the hub of student life on campus, and offer extended business hours to accommodate students' schedules. 
 
When you visit the Student Financial and Registration Services team in the Student Services Hub, you will be able to order and pick up transcripts, request certification letters, submit registration requests (RTF-EZ and Consortium), and get answers to questions about your academic schedule.

Our office helps to facilitate the registration process by providing a variety of resources for students. Here on our web site you will find instructions on how to register for classes through GWeb, the registration schedule for each upcoming semester, information on waitlists, instructions for resolving holds, withdrawal and refund information, and details on ROTC and Consortium registration.

Students in the Law School or Medical School, as well as students in off-campus programs, should consult with their school or program for registration information specific to them.
