•Fall Classes Not Appearing on Blackboard?
Are your fall classes not yet appearing on Blackboard? In most cases, they should not yet appear on Blackboard. Most professors will not open the class materials on Blackboard until the first week of the semester, which begins 31 Aug.
As a reminder, Blackboard is NOT where you should confirm your course registrations. Course registrations should always be confirmed in GWeb.
Every year during Alumni Weekend, campus comes alive as thousands of alumni, friends and families return to GW. During the four days of activities, 18-21 Sep, all Colonials and their families are invited to choose from 60+ events. Students are invited to participate. Review the schedule of events and register online.
Sunday, 7 Sep, is the last day to add or drop classes via GWeb. Refer to the refund schedule for dropped courses and possible refunds. As a reminder, you must be registered for a class every fall and spring semester or apply to take a Leave of Absence to maintain continuous enrollment at GW. Failure to do so puts your enrollment into jeopardy.
