Howard University has announced a new partnership agreement with the District of Columbia Public School System. Beginning this fall, students at two high schools in the district will be able to enroll in courses at Howard University and earn both high school and college credits. High school students will be able to take two courses per semester at Howard and one course during the summer months.
To be eligible for the program, high school students must have a 3.0 grade point average and obtain a letter of recommendation from their principal or guidance counselor.
Wayne A.I. Frederick, president of Howard University, stated, “Howard University and DCPS share a rich history of providing students with opportunities to explore their academic interests and advance their knowledge of the world around them. I am proud to deepen our relationship through the dual-enrollment partnership. Through this program, we are aiming to inspire and develop the next generation of leaders and innovators from right here in the District.”
