Undergraduate Admitted Student Days

Inside GW: Undergraduate Admitted Student Days

For admitted first-year students, we have a series of Inside GW Days so that you can experience what it’s like to be a student at the Corcoran at GW. As an admitted student, you will receive information directly from the Office of Admissions about Inside GW: Admitted Student Days and how to register.

We offer several Inside GW dates with special Corcoran programming so that you can learn more about your school, meet current students and faculty, and get to know your future classmates.

You can RSVP for Inside GW Days through the GW Student Portal. Information on how to access was sent directly from GW Admissions.

NEXT Celebration & Inside GW Admitted Student Day
Thursday, April 25 and Friday, April 26

We hope you join us for this two-day Admitted Student Event that incorporates special opportunities for admitted students as part of the NEXT Opening and Reception Thursday evening.  The NEXT celebration is an end-of-year show of our graduating students and their work is a perfect way to experience what to expect as a student at the Corcoran.  You will have a chance to see work from across the school - from interior architecture to dance and theatre to studio arts and design. This year’s theme is “momentum,” as our momentum catapults us in new and unexpected directions.

On Friday, you’ll participate in the Inside GW Programming and have additional opportunities to connect with your Corcoran program!
