Early Enrollment

The Early Enrollment Program gives high school seniors an opportunity to enroll full time in college courses at JWU during their senior year of high school. Students should apply for admission to the Early Enrollment Program during their junior year of high school.* Students must complete their junior year of study before enrolling in the EEP program.

The Early Enrollment Program was designed to help students investigate the variety of college and career options available to them. Early Enrollment Program students earn college credits while completing high school graduation requirements.

In accordance with the applicable federal and state law, for students entering JWU who will need to participate in a food service internship, the student must be 18 years old to participate in the internship, unless the student obtains an acknowledgement from the proposed internship site acknowledging that the student is not yet 18 years of age and stating that the student will not engage in any “particularly hazardous occupation.”


International students on an F-1 visa are not eligible for the Early Enrollment Program.
