How to Enroll
Welcome to The George Washington University Online High School admission process. We're delighted you're interested in joining our school community. GWUOHS looks for middle and high school students who are motivated, intellectually curious, and seeking a first-rate education.
While we enroll students twice per year, for fall and spring semesters, we review applications year-round. Since space is limited, we urge you to apply early and assure your seat for the coming term.
Step 1: Whether enrolling full-time or purchasing individual AP course, all applicants must create an account and complete the online application form within the Parent Portal.
Step 2: Within 24 hours of completing the application, an enrollment coordinator will call you to discuss your candidacy and walk you through the enrollment process.
Step 3: Full-time students are required to complete the admissions package. The admissions package is broken up into four sections which can be completed and submitted online through the Parent Portal.
Step 4: Full-time high school students only should submit the $150 application fee (non-refundable). Please note that middle school enrollments and individual AP course enrollments do not require a non-refundable application fee.
Step 5: Our admissions committee will review your application and provide a decision within 2 weeks. Acceptance to our school is selective, and the quality and effort you put into your application is important. For instance, we read student essays with a sympathetic yet critical eye, and high expectations.
Step 6: Upon acceptance, please contact our office at 877.382.2015 to arrange tuition payment with an enrollment coordinator.
Step 7: After completing the previous steps, an Admissions Advisor will be assigned and will schedule a conference to discuss course recommendations and transcript analysis, as needed.
