DC’s government is also proud to announce the District Leadership Program (DLP). The DLP is an internship program designed to provide tomorrow’s leaders with knowledge, tools, and experiences in government operations. Internship requires 24 hours of work each week and is open to students eligible to work in the U.S.

How to Register on GWeb
If you ever forget how to register for classes or need to confirm your schedule for a given semester, the Office of the Registrar website provides detailed instructions on how to accomplish these tasks. They also have an online tutorial to guide you through the registration process.

Once you register for the Summer 2015 (now open) or Fall 2015 (opens 23 Mar) semesters, confirm your schedule in GWeb by following these steps:

1. Select ‘Student Records & Registration Menu,’ then ‘Registration Menu.’

2. Select ‘Student Schedule by Day & Time’ to view your schedule for any given week. Select ‘Student Detail Schedule’ to view your schedule for a given term. Select the term of interest and ‘Submit.’ Full details for your registered courses will be listed. This is a great way to confirm that you registered for the correct sections, whether they be distance/online or on campus.

Each student is provided these tools to better manage themselves and their schedules. I recommend you each learn to use the tools and take full advantage of them.
