What do I need to do before coming to CI? Visit and login using your GW email and password to access GW 101, an online pre-orientation program. It's important to complete GW 101 prior to attending your CI session, as it has pertinent information regarding academic advising, how to register for classes, and more!

I'm attending an August CI session, how do I get help with what classes to take? By attending the August CI session, you will be registering remotely for classes (it's the additional date you selected -- that takes place in June). In order to feel most prepared, you should complete GW 101 and address any questions you may have regarding advising and classes to your academic advisor. The sooner you do this, the better! To find out who your advisor is, visit your academic school's website.

For any additional questions related to the CI program, please email or call 202-994-4924 (note: the office is student staffed, so please allow up to 2 business days to receive a response via phone should you leave a message).
