All bank charges for the above payments will be paid by the students. Exchange rate conversions are based on a yearly average. This rate may change should significant fluctuations occur. Students who are delinquent in their tuition and fees will not be allowed to continue in the program until their fees are current. All students, new and already enrolled, must pay the fee at the time of registration. All payments to be made in bank. No payment will be accepted at campus. The University further reserves the right to refuse to register and/or to withhold grades, transcripts, and diploma of any student until all delinquent charges have been paid in full.

Refund policy

  • As a general rule GWUP students are required to pay their fees two weeks prior to the commencement of the trimester. Every trimester students pay for the number of courses they enroll for in that trimester or pay their fees in instalments. GWUP will refund all payments made by a student if: (i) The course is cancelled, or (ii) Commencement of the course is postponed for more than four weeks.
  • Students are not entitled to a refund after commencing the course.
  • When studying through a Distance Learning Center, the Tuition Fees (which cover the teaching and the examination fee) are paid directly to the Distance Learning Center by the student because the Distance Learning Centers provide lectures and tutorial support classes to students. The Distance Learning Center must therefore issue a receipt bearing the Distance Learning Center’s name. If a refund is required, the Distance Learning Center is the one responsible for the refund.
  • Therefore, if a student withdraws from the course or program prior to commencement, or if the course is cancelled the Distance Learning Center that enrolled the student and collected the fees will refund the full Tuition Fee paid by the student.
  • After a student has commenced the course or program there is no refund of Tuition Fees. However, the student may use the Tuition Fees to study another GWUP course or program offered in the Distance Learning Center.



The rules and regulations governing the actions and interactions of administrative personnel, faculty, and students are intended to ensure that the aims and objectives of the George Washington University of Peace are accomplished according to the highest standards of academic rigor and ethical behavior. All such rules and regulations are detailed in the Student Handbook which is given to all students during new student orientation. The University expressly reserves the right to make changes to its written policies, rules, and regulations at any time.

A distinction is made between “academic” conduct and “non-academic” conduct, prescribed standards of behavior, sanctions for non-academic misconduct, the lines of authority and responsibility for non-academic behavior problem, due process and procedures for establishing disciplinary action are detailed in full within the Student Handbook

Distinction between Academic and Non-Academic Conduct:

Academic conduct is generally considered to be related to the actions of students that are associated with the teaching-learning environment. Misconduct, may include, but not necessarily be limited to, such things as plagiarism, cheating and falsifying academic records. The section below details the information for the handling of “Academic Misconduct.” The chair of the appropriate department is the first contact for reports of academic misconduct.

Non-academic conduct is generally considered to involve actions of students related to standards of behavior that are established for the purpose of maintaining an acceptable level of propriety within the university community. Through appropriate due process procedures, disciplinary action will be taken in response to conduct, which violates these principles. Details on possible types of “misconduct” by GW University students, while on campus or participating in a university sponsored activity off-campus are listed in complete detail within the Student Handbook.

 Academic Misconduct

The GW University student is expected to act in a responsible manner, as expected in a university setting, in all activities connected with his or her studies. Instances of cheating, lying, violating courses rules, copyright infringement, or damaging/destroying University facilities or equipment violate the Code of Student Ethics. If it is determined, by a professor or other appropriate University official, that a student has acted unprofessionally, he or she will be subject to disciplinary action. Such action shall include but not be limited to: a failing grade on the work product, a failing grade in the course, or expulsion from the program. The severity of the action shall be jointly determined by the appropriate Professor and the Academic Standards Committee. The student shall have the right to appeal to the Provost in writing, stating the reason for the appeal. A personal meeting with the Provost may be arranged. The Provost’s decision is final. All appeals must be made no later than four weeks from the date of the decision of the Academic Standards Committee or four weeks from the distribution of final grades.
