Academic Programs & Support 

The Office for Student Success offers academic support programs for incoming, visiting, and currently enrolled students who are experiencing academic difficulty or personal challenges.  We work closely with advisors and faculty to connect with students who meet eligibility for additional support from programs such as Summer Academy or through guided coaching offered through Academic Success Program, to ensure continued progress toward degree.  We also connect students to other academic resources as appropriate.

OSS works with departments, faculty, advisors, and the larger GW community to provide an integrated and holistic approach to student support, that considers the personal dimension of health and wellness and accessibility to safe spaces, food security, and physical well-being and mental guidance, integral to a successful experience.
