The George Washington University Pre-College Program



The university offers one-, three-, and six-week credit-bearing and noncredit courses for academically motivated high schoolers. Credit-bearing classes are limited to rising seniors, who attend class alongside George Washington undergraduates. Students enroll in a writing seminar and an elective course of their choosing. Weekly talks and demonstrations address academic exploration and college life. Noncredit courses are open to students entering grades 10-12. Participants in both programs make use of the cultural and intellectual resources of the city.
