High School Students in Richmond Can Earn College Credits at Virginia State University

Historically Black Virginia State University has entered into an agreement with the public school system of the city of Richmond. Under the terms of the Academic Partnership Program, high achieving students in Richmond high schools will take college-level courses that are identical to those taken by students at Virginia State. High school students in the program will be given identification cards that will enable them to access the university’s library, laboratories, and other facilities. University faculty will assist high school teachers in course work.

Students in the program will earn credit for high school but the credits will also be applicable to their degree program should they matriculate at Virginia State. Students who successfully complete the program can earn one semester of college credits, enabling them to reduce the cost of college. There will be no tuition cost for high school students taking the college-level courses.
