College Exposure-Dual Enrollment Program

The College Exposure-Dual Enrollment Program has afforded hundreds of academically driven students an alternative learning style since 1975. Specifically, the program fills an academic void by offering rising District of Columbia Public High Schools’ seniors the opportunity to maintain their high school status while enrolled part-time or full-time at a participating university. As well as making a college adjustment, many seniors are advanced college freshmen by the time they graduate.

The broad goals of the program are:

  • To offer a more flexible educational continuum as an alternative to the traditional pattern of an eight through twelve grade curriculum
  • To provide high school students who have an accelerated mastery of competencies by the junior year to enroll in first-year college-level courses
  • To raise academic austerity and student motivation via exposure to collegiate rigor, expectations, and mechanics

Applications are available in your school counselor’s office during the spring of your Junior year. Please click here for the Dual Enrollment Checklist.
