Pre-College Dual Enrollment Program

The Pre-college Dual Enrollment Program provides high school students the opportunity to begin their college careers early, on either a part-time or full-time basis.

The part-time (summer or regular academic year) student is a high school junior or senior who wishes to take one or two courses at East Stroudsburg University (ESU) in order to enrich his/her high school program.

To be eligible for the program students must:

  • Have an overall minimum B average or higher in a college preparatory program
  • Be recommended (written letter) to ESU’s program by their guidance counselor


  • Students with less than an overall B average, but who have demonstrated a minimum B average in a particular subject, may be recommended by their guidance counselor (written letter) to pursue coursework in that subject area.

Recommendation letters should be mailed to the Office of Undergraduate Admission. Students are admitted to ESU in a non-degree status. Students who wish to matriculate as degree-seeking at ESU after high school graduation must apply during the senior year of high school using the regular freshman application.

The full-time student is a student who has completed his/her junior year in high school and wishes to enroll in a full course of study at East Stroudsburg University in lieu of the senior year in high school. Such students must rank in the top 10 percent of their class and be enrolled in a college preparatory curriculum in order to be considered.
