The High School Scholars Program is a highly selective program that allows high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors to register for college courses – on a space-available basis – at Drexel University’s University City Campus while completing high school. Applicants must demonstrate the responsibility and maturity expected of university students, and have the approval of their high school guidance counselor to participate. It is important to note that this is NOT a dual-enrollment program; the High School Scholars program does not offer high school credit through college courses.
The High School Scholars Program provides a number of advantages to students:
- There is no tuition cost for courses taken through the High School Scholar Program.
- High School Scholars have the ability to earn credits toward a future degree at Drexel, or possibly transfer credits at other universities.
- The High School Scholars program prepares students for the college environment.
