Costs and Aid

The George Washington University School of Nursing is happy to offer fixed-rate tuition for the majority of our programs, which minimizes unexpected tuition increases and helps students better manage their financial obligations. We also help our students acquire financial aid, increase the availability of scholarship opportunities and create partnerships to increase the value of our students’ education.


Our partnership with GW Hospital offers residency, tuition coverage and job placement upon successful graduation from our RN-BSN program.


We negotiate guaranteed admissions agreements for students who obtain an ADN at select community colleges in the area and are interested in furthering their education at GW Nursing.

Community College

GW Nursing awarded more than $1 million in scholarships funded by strategic partners in the past academic year.


Costs Per Program

The majority of our programs fall under the fixed-rate tuition plan. Each of the graduate and undergraduate program tuition rates can be found at Student Accounts Office. Click on the School of Nursing PDF under the appropriate term for current tuition rates and fees.

Other program costs might include books, certified background checks, certified drug testing and health insurance. These costs are variable and subject to change. Contact our Student Services department for help calculating your expected program costs.

Funding for Military and Veterans


Our military and veterans are a valuable resource to our country, and GW values their service. At GW Nursing, we provide the best educational experience and resources for our military and veterans.

The Office of Military and Veteran Student Services helps students understand the benefits available to them, assists students in taking the proper steps to receive those benefits, and acts as a liaison between students and other offices.  

Yellow Ribbon Program

Since 2009, GW has been a proud participant of the Yellow Ribbon program, a provision of the G.I. Bill that provides assistance with educational expenses. For more information on the program and application instructions, please visit GWeb.

Financial Aid and Scholarships

Financial Aid and Scholarships

We understand that pursuing your educational goals can be a substantial financial commitment, which is why we offer assistance with exploring your financial aid and scholarship options. Learn more about the options through Colonial Central or access personalized financial aid information through GWeb. (GWeb is for current students only, as it requires a GWid to log in.)

Office of Financial Aid

GW’s Office of Financial Aid administers financial aid to both undergraduate and graduate students. In conjunction with GW Nursing, they assist students with applying for loans, calculating the cost of attendance, determining eligibility for financial aid, and completing the FAFSA or GW Loan Questionnaire. 


GW Nursing is dedicated to providing scholarship opportunities for our students. We have been fortunate to receive scholarship funding from many donors and foundations. To learn more about scholarship opportunities, please contact our Student Services department.

The GW Hospital Nursing Scholars Program is the result of a partnership with the George Washington University Hospital. This program option requires a commitment to work at GW Hospital during your time in the program and for a period of time after graduation in exchange for 100 percent tuition coverage.

Our merit-based scholarships are offered to qualified students each semester for assistance with tuition expense. Each student is automatically considered upon applying to their selected program.

GW Nursing is honored to have received contributions from the Helene Fuld Health Trust Scholarship and The Dawson Scholars. These allow us to offer endowment scholarships to outstanding students with financial need.

Johnson Pawlson Endowment Scholarship

We are honored to have received endowment funds from Jean Johnson, founding dean of GW Nursing, Greg Pawlson, a former faculty member, and their daughters, who are GW alumni. Their commitment to this school is unrivaled, and this scholarship is offered to a student in need that displays special interest in patient safety and quality.

Foundation scholarships offer assistance to students that are committed to community service, are economically disadvantaged, or work in medically underserved communities.
