English for Academic Purposes (EAP)

The English for Academic Purposes (EAP) Program serves enrolled international students of the George Washington University, both graduate and undergraduate, who are speakers of English as a second or additional language. The program's highly qualified faculty teach the research, writing, and communication skills that form the basis of success in the academic and professional worlds, and the program serves as an important resource for international students at the university.

In Addition to the EAP Writing Support Program, the GW Writing Center conducts free, one-on-one sessions with undergraduate and graduate students to assist students with course writing assignments, research papers, theses, and personal statements. 




Writing Support Program

The EAP Writing Support Program offers a free, one-on-one service for GWU students with non-English backgrounds at the Language Center, Phillips Hall 210B during regular semesters. Our tutors are available during any stage of the writing process to work on audience, brainstorming, citation, drafting, evidence, grammar, organization and flow, outlining, paragraphing, revision, thesis, and tone. In addition they are trained to provide focused support for non-native speakers. 

The EAP Writing Support Program for the Spring semester will begin on Tuesday, January 20, 2015.  Visit our appointment website to make an appointment.
