The High School Access Program provides an opportunity for high school students to begin their college careers early, on either a part-time or full-time basis.
The part-time (summer or regular academic year) student is a high school junior or senior who wishes to take one or two courses at East Stroudsburg University in order to enrich his/her high school program.
Highly motivated students with a minimum average of B or higher in a college preparatory program may be recommended to the university by their guidance counselors. Students with less than a B average but who have demonstrated particular skill or talent in a given area may be recommended by their counselors to pursue coursework in that area.
Recommendations should be sent to the Office of Admission. Students are admitted to ESU in a non-degree status. Should a student wish to matriculate as degree-seeking at ESU after high school graduation, he/she must apply during the senior year of high school using the regular freshman application.
The full-time student is a student who has completed his/her junior year in high school and wishes to enroll in a full course of study at East Stroudsburg University in lieu of the senior year in high school. Such students must rank in the top 10 percent of their class and be enrolled in a college preparatory curriculum in order to be considered.
Full details are available from the Office of Admission or on the freshman information page of the admissions website at www.esu.edu.
