Welcome to the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences (CCAS)! Whether you are considering transferring to GW or are a newly admitted transfer student into CCAS, we welcome you and value the experiences and perspectives you bring from other institutions and schools.

Planning out a new academic trajectory at GW — choosing a major, applying your transfer credit, learning about GPAC, registering for classes — can be a lot to take in at one time. Review this section and refer back to it often for any transfer-related needs.

Meeting regularly with your assigned advising POD is also essential to getting and staying on track academically. Book an appointment online with your advisor or contact [email protected] with questions.
