The Young Scholars High School Program allows outstanding juniors and seniors attending a local high school to take college courses in the fall and spring semesters. In the Young Scholars Program, you can pursue your discipline beyond the level offered in secondary schools, get a head start on your college requirements, or explore a brand-new field that interests you. It’s an exciting chance to explore new ideas and experience life in a college classroom.

Young Scholars Program students can choose from a variety of courses at the undergraduate level offered by the College of Liberal and Professional Studies. Topics offered include anthropology, economics, English, math, philosophy, linguistics, psychology, and many more. Students must apply according to our admissions and eligibility guidelines. Enrollment is subject to the approval of the program director, and registration in a desired course is not guaranteed.
