From The GW Hatchet: George Washington University was 60 students away from exceeding the enrollment cap for the Foggy Bottom campus in Washington, D.C., this semester. With the level of students close to reaching the full-time student cap, the University is looking at decreasing the student count by encouraging students to study abroad and moving programs to other campuses. If the University exceeds the enrollment cap, it will face substantial fines and other sanctions. Two caps restrict the school's Foggy Bottom campus. The headcount cap limits Foggy Bottom to 20,000 students. The other limit - the one the University is close to exceeding - is the full-time equivalent cap, which limits Foggy Bottom to 16,553 full-time or full-time equivalent students.
