DCPS Dual Enrollment

The DCPS Dual Enrollment program at GW offers qualified rising seniors the opportunity to enroll part-time at GW for one academic year and earn undergraduate credit. Students who have been recommended and applied through DCPS are eligible for consideration.

Following notification of acceptance to the program, admitted students should apply online to GW. Supporting documents are not necessary. Students will enroll in one course (3 credit hours) during the fall semester. Students who perform well are eligible to enroll in up to two courses (6 credit hours) during the spring semester. All courses are offered on a space available basis. Course selections must be approved by GW from selected offerings and students must attend orientation. Students have access to advising and support services offered by the GW Office for Diversity, Equity, and Community Engagement. Summer enrollment is excluded for this program.
