GW gains NCAA certification
GW completed a yearlong process that included a self-study report and a campus visit by the NCAA and was granted full Division I sports certification.
The Colonials joined 13 other NCAA Division I schools to achieve certification status this month. Eventually, all 310 Division I members must undergo this process in complying with a reform agenda adopted at the 1993 NCAA Convention.
