Spring 2016 Mason-FCPS Math Dual Enrollment Program
The George Mason University Department of Mathematical Sciences partnership with Fairfax County Public Schools offers exceptionally talented high school students the opportunity to earn advanced university level mathematics credit. All courses are taught by Mason affiliate faculty and are offered on-site in FCPS high schools.
George Mason University will consider highly qualified juniors and seniors for participation in the dual enrollment program. The Admissions Committee will offer admission to students who have demonstrated the preparation and maturity indicative of the potential to succeed in Mason’s rigorous coursework. The applicant’s entire secondary academic record will be considered in the selection process and not all applicants will be offered admission. Enrollment in a FCPS math course does not constitute admission to George Mason University.
Courses of Instruction
- MATH 203 Linear Algebra (3)
Offered only at TJHSST
- MATH 214 Elementary Differential Equations (3)

If you are unsure of which course you are completing, consult your math teacher before applying.
