*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.
The Spring semester begins February 8th. During Spring application dates, we serve a limited number of students on a first come first served basis. Add your name to the Interest List by December 11th to be considered for the Spring 2021 semester.
The Fall semester begins in August. 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.
