Information Session on the George Washington University Early College ProgramAre you interested in learning about the opportunities SWW students have in taking college courses at George Washington University? These opportunities begin the summer after students complete the 10th grade. If you would like to learn more, please come to an Information Session on Tuesday, February 5th at 6:30 PM in the SWW Commons Room.

Below are brief descriptions of the two different options for SWW students: The GW Exposure Program and The GW Early College Program. The focus of the Information Session will be on the GW Early College Program and how to apply.

The George Washington University Exposure Program allows SWW students with qualifying GPA and PSAT scores to enroll in college courses beginning the summer after their sophomore year. Accepted students may take one course per semester and must reapply each semester.

The George Washington University Early College Program (GWECP) allows SWW students to enroll full-time at GWU during their junior and senior years of high school. GWECP students are considered full-time GWU students and take four to five college classes per semester. At the completion of the program, GWECP students earn both their high school diploma and an Associate of Arts degree from GWU’s Columbian College of Arts and Sciences.

During the Information Session, Dr. Sheila Harris – who oversees the GWECP Program – and representatives from the GWU Admissions Office will provide information on the GWECP Program, including application procedures and deadlines.

We look forward to seeing you on February 5th!
