Eligibility for Services

As an undergraduate, graduate, law, medical, and professional student at the George Washington University (GW), you are eligible to receive services if you are enrolled for at least one credit during the semester in which you request services.

Full-time students who are employed part-time at the university are considered students primarily, and are therefore eligible for services. Full-time employees are not eligible for services. 

Students who reside outside the Washington, DC metropolitan area, including students who are studying abroad (attending courses at another institution) and distance-learning students, are not eligible for services, however they are welcome to contact the Center for recommendations for services in their area.  

New, incoming students are eligible for services starting on the first day of the semester in which they are enrolled. Residential students are eligible for services starting on the day they move into the residence halls.

Students on an university approved Leave of Absence and Continuous Enrollment are eligible to receive services.

Students who cease to be enrolled are not eligible for services as of the date of their temporary or permanent separation from the university.

If you are living at GW over the summer through our Summer Housing program and are not enrolled as a GW student, you are not eligible for services.
