The Fall semester starts in September. The lottery only happens for fall semester classes. For classes where there are more applicants than spaces available, the school conducts a lottery so all new applicants have the same chance to enter into their class.
The Spring semester begins in January. During Spring Registration dates, we serve a limited number of students. Applicants receive an entry ticket when they arrive. Each day the doors close at the scheduled closing time, or when the building reaches capacity. Applicants with entry tickets are served on a First Come First Served basis. First Come First Served also means includes having the proper documents in hand.
Regular classes are open to DC residents who meet one or more of the following Adult Basic Education (ABE) criteria:
*There may be some classes that are open to non-DC residents. Beyond our tuition-free class offerings, the School also offers special fee-based programs that are open to students, employees and the public, such as Community Language Classes and the Small Business and Entrepreneurship Workshop Series. These programs are usually held on weekends when classes are not in session. These programs do not have the same registration and enrollment requirements as tuition-free classes.
