Courses taken at other universities must be pre-approved by the student’s Department of Geography advisor, who will submit paperwork to the Office of the Registrar if approved. Students should bring a copy of the course syllabus and Transfer Credit Approval Form with appropriate sections completed when meeting with their advisor. More details are available on the Office of the Registrar website.
Students wishing to transfer credit from courses taken while studying abroad should meet with their department advisor. Students should provide a complete syllabus, semester in which the course was taken, the department and country of study and the name of the GW course for which they hope to obtain credit.
