Final Information Session for Fall Will Be Held Thursday, July 19

Beginning this fall, Wilmington University will offer a new scholarship program which 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. The Early College Scholarship program is open to high school students with a G.P.A of 3.2 or better, who are currently enrolled in a Delaware high school as a junior or senior, and who have attended an information session with a parent or guardian. The final information session for students interested in enrolling in the fall will be held this Thursday, July 19 at 6:00 p.m. in the Doberstein Admissions Center Auditorium on Wilmington University's New Castle campus.

The free courses offered to high school students in this program are fully-accredited, freshman-level courses that are taught by expert faculty.These courses will give students a chance to get a head start on college-level study and learning. To accommodate for students across the state Wilmington University will be offering these courses at five different locations: the New Castle campus, Brandywine site (North Wilmington), Middletown site, Dover campus, and Sussex Technical School District in Georgetown. Students will also have the chance to take an online course if the other locations are not convenient.

Wilmington University President, Dr. Jack Varsalona, commented, “We hope this program will assist high school students throughout Delaware in reducing the cost of college while earning a head start on their college careers."
