Some academic programs also have waived requirement for standardized tests such as the GMAT and GRE.
The George Washington University will continue its Grad2Grad program this year, offering 2016 graduates of GW a 10 percent tuition reduction for eligible GW graduate programs, including the master’s of professional studies degree in political management and the master’s of arts in international affairs.
“GW initiated the Grad2Grad Program to encourage our graduating seniors in 2015 to stay on at GW for a graduate degree,” said Geri Rypkema, assistant provost in the Office of Graduate Student Assistantships and Fellowships, which administers the program. “The financial incentive demonstrates that we highly value our recent alumni and we want to keep them in the GW talent pool.”
Eighty 2015 graduates are currently enrolled in GW graduate programs.
The Grad2Grad discount will be available to students who begin their graduate programs no later than spring 2017. Applicants must meet admissions standards for their chosen degree or certificate, but some programs have waived requirements for standardized tests like the GMAT and GRE.
