Topeka Public Schools and Washburn University (WU)

The dual credit courses are limited to juniors and seniors who have at least a 3.0 cumulative high school GPA. Additionally, students enrolling in College Algebra must either score 22 on the ACT Math Exam or the equivalent score on the COMPASS Math Test. Courses offered for concurrent credit are:

Concurrent Enrollment Partnership (CEP) Courses

These courses are taught at the participating high schools during the regular school day and have the same

requirements as the courses taught on the Washburn University campus. The courses vary by high school. A CEP

program orientation and registration session is held at each high school in both the fall and spring. Students should

contact their counselor at Topeka West High School for specific times, dates, and course information.

Washburn University Accelerated College Experience (ACE)

The Accelerated College Experience (ACE) program is designed to expand access to academically challenging
college curricula for qualified high school students through a combination of Concurrent Enrollment Partnership
(CEP) courses, the Senior Academy (SA), and selected online courses. High school juniors and seniors with at least
a 3.0 GPA can earn up to six hours of college credit each semester at half the regular tuition rate through the ACE
program. Students must have the approval of their high school principal or counselor (and their parent or legal
guardian if under 18) to enroll in these courses.

Senior Academy

The Senior Academy is another opportunity for high school second-semester seniors to earn an additional 9
hours of academic credit on the Washburn University campus. The courses meet from 8:00 to 11:00 a.m. on
Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Students must have completed at least six hours of CEP or other ACE courses
with at least a 3.00 GPA to be eligible for the Senior Academy. They must also submit a brief application that
includes a letter of recommendation from their high school principal or counselor, and if under 18, must have the
approval of the parent or legal guardian to participate in the Academy.
