Young Scholars Program for High School Students

The Young Scholars Program offers academically talented high school students who live within commuting distance of Stony Brook the opportunity to complement their high school study with part-time coursework at Stony Brook for a reduced fee. The courses are scheduled in the late afternoon, early evening, and on Saturday. In past semesters, course offerings have included Calculus III: Differential Equations, Spanish Composition and Conversation, Introduction to Sociology, Introduction to Psychology, and Logical and Critical Reasoning.

For each course the title, credits, and grade will be recorded on an official Stony Brook transcript. The student may later use these courses toward a degree at Stony Brook or offer them as transfer credit at another college or university.

Applicants should have junior or senior standing with an average of 90 or above, should have taken honors and advanced placement courses when available, and have Regents scores in the high 80's or 90's. Participants must have the approval of their parents and guidance counselor or principal before acceptance into the program.
