GW's Campus in Spring

Rolling Admissions

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.* Applying early ensures you the best chance at admission.

Additionally, internships in Washington DC are very competitive. Students should apply to the program as early as possible so that they can begin to work with our team on securing a position before internship application deadlines pass.

While our admissions process is rolling, please be aware of our application deadlines.

The Priority Deadline: Students should complete their application before the Priority Deadline in order to ensure maximum opportunities for internships, as well as for priority housing and admission considerations.

Find our more about applying for internships.

The Final Deadline: All application materials must be received by this date. (This is not a postmark date.)
