GW Health Sciences currently offers 48 programs across 34 fields of study, and that robust programming has not changed due to COVID-19. All of our programs are operating, classes are ongoing, and we are currently accepting applications for all programs.
GW Health Sciences has had an in-house team dedicated to educational technology, instructional design, and multimedia course delivery since 2012. The coronavirus has closed classrooms at our Washington, D.C. and Ashburn, Virginia, campuses, but technological innovation is being used for education delivery. Until we can resume in-person classes, our IMPACT team will continue to work closely to ensure programs are operating optimally during this time.
Online Programming: Programs that have transitioned to online delivery are positioned to support student learning from virtually anywhere. All GW Health Sciences programs remain open with virtual classrooms. Students are able to meet with one another and professors online, and faculty are well-versed and experienced to teach in the online environment. Our digital campus is designed to support connection and collaboration. There are no barriers to discussion, and all of our students remain active in their coursework.
Innovation and Advancement: We are always monitoring our curricula and technology to ensure the most rigorous and engaging experience for GW Health Sciences students.
Ongoing Support Services: At this time, our admissions and student support teams remain active and available. You can reach out at any time to speak with an admissions counselor or program advisor to ask any questions you have. Department contacts are:
- Department of Biomedical Laboratory Sciences: email@example.com
- Department of Clinical Research and Leadership: firstname.lastname@example.org

In-Person Experiences: Hands-on, in-person learning is a cornerstone of several GW Health Sciences programs. We will continue to evaluate in-person experiences on a program-by-program basis and communicate directly with affected faculty and current students.

COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement for GW Students
The GW community continues to be encouraged by the progress that is being made toward a post-pandemic university, country, and world. As the COVID-19 vaccine distribution expands and the availability of vaccines increases, GW has decided to require staff, faculty, and students who are in-person to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to being on campus. Students who are taking classes online-only will not be required to show proof of vaccination. For more information, please refer to the COVID-19 Campus Health and Wellbeing Policy from GWU's Office of Ethics, Compliance, and Policy.
