Employer Tuition Discounts

The GW School of Business offers tuition discounts to current and qualified employees of Booz Allen Hamilton, Leidos, Lockheed Martin, Organization of American States (GS/OAS), and SAIC.

The discount is a fixed percentage off the university’s approved tuition rate for courses required in the program to which you are admitted. For students who are awarded fellowships or scholarships through GW regardless of funding source, the tuition discount will be applied to the remaining tuition balance after all GW awards have been applied.
