George Washington University-Early Assurance Program Checklist

Deadline:  February 15th, 2018 at 12:00PM (Noon)

Completed applications are due to the HPAO. The pre-medical advisor will review all applications before submitting to George Washington University. The Health Professions Advising Office will mail all completed applications to this program. Students do not apply directly to GWU; they must apply through the HPAO. Competitive applicants will be invited by George Washington University in June for an interview. Final decisions are usually made by July. This completed checklist must accompany your application.
