Washington Mentorship Program

Offered by the School of Professional & Extended Studies , this 12-15 credit fall semester program gives students admitted as spring freshmen an insider’s perspective on Washington, DC. Based on the highly successful academic model of AU’s Washington Semester Program , the Washington Mentorship Program is grounded in the best practices of experiential and traditional academic learning. All academic credits earned for successfully completed courses in this program are AU credits that apply to the student’s degree program, allowing the student to graduate in four or fewer years.

As members of the AU community, students have the opportunity to enjoy the full college experience, including living in a residence hall room, getting involved in events and activities on campus, and having full access to all university services, facilities, and resources.
