Summer English for Academic Purposes (EAP)

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.

The summer semester is also an excellent opportunity for international students to become familiar with the campus, local resources, and the D.C. community before the start of their 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 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.
