What is the Visiting Scholars program?
The Visiting 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 Visiting Scholars program does not offer high school credit through college courses.
- Drexel University adheres to a 10-week term schedule with Final Exams occurring during week 11.
- Visiting Scholars may register for ONE (1) course per term (up to 4 courses per year).
- Students attend regular University courses with current full-time Drexel students, and must meet the same requirements as other Drexel students in the class.
- Students earn college credit for courses completed with a passing grade.
- Students must earn a 'B' grade or better in order to remain in good standing with the program.
Registering for a Course:
Because Visiting Scholars are placed in University courses with college students, registration takes place after all current Drexel students have been registered for courses. Therefore, Visiting Scholars CANNOT be guaranteed enrollment into any course. Enrollment into a particular course is dependent upon available space and the approval of the instructor.
Visiting Scholars may choose courses listed under:
The College of Arts and Sciences
LeBow College of Business
Goodwin College of Professional Studies
