Reminder for all graduate students: Due to COVID-19, many GW programs have been taught online this fall. As a result, the educational experience that you have already known or were hoping to experience as a graduate student took on different form.

Recently, President LeBlanc announced that all undergraduate courses and most graduate programs will be conducted remotely this spring. Thus, GW is conducting a survey to check in with you and better understand your academic experience so far. The findings and your suggestions for improving remote learning will be used in our planning for spring.

Please check for an email titled “(Your Name), Let Us Know How You Are Doing - Check-in Survey” for a link to the survey!
