Who is responsible for awarding merits and how do they get posted to your Lodge?
Generally speaking, the head of your house or lodge would award the merit points. However, there are some situations where another member of staff or faculty would award those points. For example, if you attended one of the Grey School Conclaves, it's assumed that the Wizard in Charge (WiC) would award the merits. Merits for participation in a challenge of any kind would be awarded by the person who initiated the challenge. The best policy is "when in doubt, check with your house or lodge head!"Back to top
Why are my choices of classes still in pending status?
This is because the instructors for the classes you've chosen have not approved you for the classes yet. Faculty members are given a one-week period in which to respond to new class requests. Please be patient; faculty members donate their time to Grey School and sometimes that time can be limited. If you have waited more than a week for entry to a class, please email the professor.Back to top
Can a student take classes from a lower level once they reach the next level?
Yes. Students can take classes from their current level and below. For example, if you're a level 3 student, then you would be able to enroll in level 1, level 2, and level 3 classes.Back to top

I remember reading somewhere that the Grey School is an official, legally recognized school. When doing my taxes, can I count my tuition to GSW as a deduction?
GSW is not an accredited school in any state, but is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization. Consult your tax advisor about the tax implications of tuition and/or donations.
How do I request a test/exam?
If the test is a Multiple Choice test, then you will see a "Request Test" link next to the name of the test. Click this link and it will take you through the process of requesting the test. If the test is an essay, then the first essay is automatically approved. Subsequent essays are automatically approved when the previous one is graded.
I'm not sure how to sign up for a class. Can someone please explain how you do that?
When you first log in to GSW, you are taken to your "My Account" page. The second section of this page is titled "Class Information." There is a link at the bottom of this section that reads "Sign up for classes." Clicking this link will take you to a new page that gives basic information about classes and includes links at the top for the different levels of classes.
