COVID-19 Safety and Centuries Celebration Weekend Check-in


STEP 1: Plan Ahead Before You Register 

Before you start the registration process, it helps to plan ahead. You can register yourself and up to four additional guests. Only one person from each party should register the group. Be sure to review the schedule of events and confer with your family and/or guests about which events you wish to attend. This will help to make your registration process much smoother.

STEP 2: Find Your Name and Sign Up 

Once you begin the registration process, many members of the GW community will see their names have been pre-loaded into the site. If you see many similar names or don’t find your name, that’s perfectly fine. Just click the “I Do Not Appear To Be Listed” button and proceed to enter your information.

Once you're done entering your own information, you can then add the information for the other guests in your party. Be sure to include a valid email address for each guest so that they receive a confirmation email with their check-in details. If any of your guests are affiliated with GW, their name may also appear and can be selected to be part of your group. 

STEP 3: Choose Your Events 

Once you've finished entering the information for you and your guests, it’s time to choose which GW Centuries Celebration Weekend events to attend. You will see two events packages to choose from.

  • Centuries Celebration Package: Most members of the GW community should select this option.
  • Centuries Celebration + Commencement Package: Graduates and family members from the Classes of 2020 and 2021 should select this package if they wish to attend Commencement. PLEASE NOTE: Registration for Commencement closes Tuesday, August 31!  

Once you select your desired package, you can then register for the events you and your guests wish to attend during the weekend. If all guests are attending the same events together, there is an option to copy the primary registrant’s selections.

STEP 4: Choose to Support GW Students 

After choosing your events, you then have the option to support GW students. As we enter our third century, please join us in opening doors for current and future GW students by making a gift to support scholarships and fellowships.

STEP 5: Review and Confirm 

Your final step is to review and confirm the information for you and your guests and the selected events. You may click back to a previous step to make edits if desired. Once you click "Continue", you and your guests will each receive a confirmation email. If you wish to change part of your event registration at a later date, click on the personalized link provided in your confirmation email.
