Overview

Students may complete the Secondary Education program at American University Washington DC in as few as two semesters. Should students require the full three terms to complete requirements for successful progression, students may enroll in a reduced course load in their final term if all other program requirements are met. 

Program highlights

  • Just the right amount of support when you need it. This program features a curriculum designed to accommodate your academic and English-language needs.
  • Credit-bearing courses, so it is possible to earn a full freshman year’s worth of credits while taking courses tailored to your needs as an international student, helping you achieve your academic and career goals.
  • English-language instruction to meet your needs, both socially and academically; for example, you will be prepared specifically for the classes you will take, such as algebra and U.S. history.
  • Integrated with open and closed courses, so you’ll be in some classes with U.S. students and others with your designated AAP cohort.

All students will take an English language assessment test during their orientation. This test is the primary means for final placement and could vary from the preliminary placement identified on your offer letter. As a result, the length of study may be longer than originally anticipated, and involve additional costs including tuition and other fees.
