Wilmington University Hosts Info Session for Early College Scholarship Program in Dover

Courses allow high school students to earn college credit

Wilmington University will hold an information session for high school students and their parents who are interested in the Early College Scholarship Program at 6 p.m. on August 14, 2013. 

The session, which will be held at the University’s Dover campus on U.S. 13, will highlight new offerings and courses that allow high school students across Delaware to earn college credit. 

Rising high school juniors and seniors in Delaware with a cumulative 3.2 grade-point average are eligible for the Early College program. The program offers free introductory-level courses that are highly transferrable to most institutions. Students can earn up to 12 college credits by the time they graduate high school. 

Wilmington University adjunct professors with experience in high school classrooms will teach the courses.

Staff will be on hand at the information session to further explain the Early College program and to help students prepare for courses. Students are required to bring a parent or guardian to the session as well as a copy of their most recent transcript or report card. (Unofficial transcripts or report cards are acceptable.) A $35 application fee and a $25 registration fee are also required to apply to the program, but are not required to attend the info session. 

Courses will begin in the fall of 2013 and will be offered in 14-week semester formats.
