All GW alumni are eligible to receive a GWorld card. Alumni GWorld cards are a great way to stay connected with the campus community.

If you're an alumni and a faculty or staff member, you must maintain your faculty or staff card. If you're an alumni and a current student, you must maintain your student card. You can wait to get your alumni card until after you leave your faculty or staff position or finish taking classes.


Your graduation and alumni status must be fully processed (typically 8-12 weeks after your graduation date) before you can present a valid U.S. government issued photo ID to get your GWorld alumni card. Contact us if you'd like to confirm your eligibility for an alumni GWorld card.

Card Fees

There is a $10.00 fee to purchase your first alumni card and a $25.00 fee to replace a lost or stolen card.


Your card will provide you access to GW Libraries (based on the school from which you graduated). Alumni may also purchase memberhsip to the Lerner Health & Wellness Center (restrictions may apply, contact Lerner for rates & purchase requirements).


Your card will have any remaining balances from your student card and you can add Colonial Cash to your card for convenient purchasing and discounts around campus.
