The summer English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program is a language course designed for international students who wish to improve their English skills before the start of their academic program.

Resources available to Summer EAP students include:

  • On-campus housing for all summer EAP students
  • Specialized programming and excursions
  • Advanced English classes designed to prepare you for your program at the GW School of Business (GWSB)
  • Networking with other new and continuing students
  • Opportunity to become comfortable with GW campus and the D.C. metro area
  • Additional time to find housing and roommates
