Early Enrollment

Starting the beginning of a student's senior year in high school, qualified applicants will attend classes at JWU earning credits for high school and college courses through the Early Enrollment Program (EEP). 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.

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.”

To be considered for EEP, students need to have

  • a minimum 2.75 GPA (B-) and a B- in English
  • a minimal number of high school classes left to complete to meet graduation requirements

For example, students might have one English class and one or two other classes to take in order to graduate.

Requirements and equivalent JWU courses will be determined by the student's high school counselor and JWU.
