Need-Based Aid 

Need-based assistance is only available to eligible U.S. citizens and permanent residents. International students are not eligible for need-based assistance.

GW's Office of Student Financial Assistance reviews financial details for all eligible admitted students and administers need-based aid. Your financial need is determined based on the information you supply through the College Scholarship Service (CSS) Profile and Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Use the Net Price Calculator to determine your potential eligibility for financial aid and calculate your possible out-of-pocket expenses.


Types of Assistance 

There are several types of funding to help you bridge the gap between your contribution and the total cost of attendance.
