SPGIA's faculty and student and career services team are committed to helping students make excellent use of the academic and professional opportunities offered by SPGIA, George Mason University, and the Washington region. Advising services are comprehensive and accessible when students need them.

In addition to top-notch courses, SPGIA students can take advantage of professional development opportunities offered by faculty and staff. Whether it's networking with SPGIA alumni, brushing up on resume and interviewing skills, or learning how to get on the career fast-track, the tools that rising policy-makers need to get ahead are at SPGIA students' fingertips.

In-state students receive a better education at SPGIA for a fraction of the cost of private institutions in the D.C. area; tuition for out-of-state students is lower as well. Scholarship opportunities are available for highly-qualified applicants and continuing students.
