About the Senior Academy

Concurrent Enrollment Program (CEP)

CEP Overview & Purpose

Washburn University’s Concurrent Enrollment Partnership (CEP) is designed to enhance the transition from high school to college by providing an enriching and rigorous college-level academic experience to diligent high school students.

CEP courses utilize equivalent curriculum as Washburn’s on campus course sections. Successful CEP students master the same skills and content knowledge as their university counterparts and earn the same college credit for their efforts.

The Washburn CEP program is compliant with standards outlined by the Kansas Board of Regents and the Higher Learning Commission and credits earned through the program are widely transferrable.

Ichabod Senior Academy

The Ichabod Senior Academy is a collaborative effort of the Center for Student Success, Mabee Library, Academic Affairs, the Department of English, Student Life, and Enrollment Management at Washburn University and area high schools.

The Academy provides academically high achieving Shawnee County high school seniors, during the second semester of their senior year, the opportunity to earn nine hours of academic credit on the Washburn University campus. 

Academy students enroll in nine credit hours (WU 101 and two General Education courses) at half of normal tuition and complete a preliminary academic and career plan to jump-start their postsecondary education. 

High school principals or counselors nominate students with a 3.5 GPA or higher to the Academy. 

The Senior Academy is a wonderful opportunity for high school students to get a taste of what college life is like.
