Description: This program accepts high school students who have the social and emotional maturity to function independently as college freshmen, and who want to trade their senior year of high school for their freshman year of college. Interested students should have a record of success in high school, such as honors and AP or IB courses, summer programs and special talents in music, cinema, or the performing arts. The core curriculum is designed around small courses, which are taught by many of the University's faculty, and one-on-one tutorials.

"In the Resident Honors Program, you can take classes in over 100 different academic and professional degree programs. While majoring in anything from Cinema to Engineering to Philosophy to Neuroscience, you can also take courses that prepare you to enter law school, medical school, or graduate studies. You can even work with your advisor to create your own unique degree program." This may be another early entrance option for gifted children who live in CA.
