Wilmington University's new scholarship program offers high school juniors and seniors in Delaware the opportunity to take college classes and earn real college credit transferable to any accredited college or university.
Best of all, students eligible for the program will receive a 100% scholarship for tuition for the first course of this new program. After the first course, students will continue to be awarded full or partial scholarships. This can save students and parents thousands on student loans and the total cost of their college degrees. Students and parents will be responsible for application and registration fees totalling $60.00 and the cost of any required books.
Any student attending a high school in the state of Delaware with a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.2 or better may apply for the program after attending a required information session with their parent or guardian.
The courses offered to high school students in this program are fully-accredited, freshman-level Wilmington University courses that will earn students real college credit that can be applied toward associate or bachelor's degrees at accredited colleges and universities throughout the country. These courses will give students a chance to get a head start on college-level study and learning.
Students will take one course per semester. Courses will be offered in a 14-week, hybrid/blended format that will meet once per week from 3:30–5:00 p.m. and also have weekly online assignments and learning activities.
College courses for high school students will be available at five locations throughout Delaware:
There's also a 100% online course available for highly-motivated students who can't attend the regularly scheduled weekly classes.
