W-9S Form

Please verify your address and tax-payer identification number in GWeb. If this information needs to be updated, students should complete the W-9S form no later than December 31st and send it our office.

 

Title IV Authorization Forms

Please review these forms thoroughly and carefully prior to electing or rescinding the authorizations herein. Each authorization has a unique purpose and will affect how The George Washington University will apply or hold Title IV credit balances.

Title IV funds are to be applied to authorized charges such as tuition, fees, and room and board as assessed by the University. Title IV funds include: Federal Pell Grants, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG), Federal Perkins Loans, Federal Work-Study, Federal Direct Stafford Loans, Federal Direct PLUS Loans and TEACH Grants.

Federal regulations require that Title IV funds awarded in excess of authorized charges must be refunded no later than 14 days after the funds are credited to the student’s account. In lieu of an automatic refund, federal regulations allow for students or parents to voluntarily authorize the University to handle Title IV credit balances in a variety of ways.
