Through our Early College Scholars Program, St. Louis area students have the opportunity to enroll in courses for credit and study alongside undergraduates at Washington University.
Students in the Early College Scholars Program commute to campus and may enroll in up to six units of credit per semester. Courses are the undergraduate-level courses in the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and mathematics offered by the College of Arts & Sciences. Scholarship assistance is available.
This program is an ideal option for students who:
- Have unique academic interests not available through their high school.
- Are looking for courses beyond their high school curriculum.
- Need to enroll in a college course to fulfill a high school requirement.
- Are exploring alternative options to AP courses.
- Want to advance their knowledge in a particular academic area such as math or foreign language.
- Would like a commuter option to our residential summer pre-college programs.
To be eligible for Early College Scholars students should be a current 12th grade St. Louis area high school student and meet any prerequisites listed for a course.
We are looking for mature, academically motivated students enrolled in challenging curriculum which may include honors, advanced placement, and International Baccalaureate courses, if offered by their high schools.
