Summer School for High School Students

Try a couple of college classes this summer — bank your college credits.

Highly qualified rising high school seniors—in the top fifth of their class and recommended by a school leader or counselor—may enroll in select Summer School classes for full college credit. Many 100- and 200- level classes are eligible for high school enrollment.

Credit earned for successful completion of courses will be kept on file. Eligible credits may be applied toward a University of Richmond degree, if accepted into a degree program, or forwarded by transcript to another college upon request.

To apply, submit the following application materials to:

Dean, School of Professional & Continuing Studies, 28 Westhampton Way, University of Richmond, VA, 23173

  • Application/Registration form
  • Payment by check or specific credit card payment
  • Letter of recommendation from your high school principal, headmaster, or guidance counselor
  • Original high school transcript in a sealed envelope
