Visitor parking is located at the Marvin Center Garage, 800 21st Street, between 21st and 22nd Streets. The cost is $7.00 for up to one hour, $13.00 for up to two hours and $16.00 daily.

The George Washington University is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor of continuing professional education on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors. State boards of accountancy have final authority on the acceptance of individual courses for CPE credit.

The George Washington University will submit applications to the state bar associations for continuing legal education credits for the states of Pennsylvania and New York.

Please contact your state’s CLE administrative office to determine whether your state will accept the requirements established by Pennsylvania and New York.
