We see that you are on to great things. You are up for a challenge. You want to start your life early. You are ready to ask the difficult questions and propose new solutions. Early College at Mary Baldwin University is tailor made for you.
The coed Early College offers the opportunity for bright 16- and 17-year-old students to skip their final years of high school and immerse themselves in college at MBU.
Learning Here (and there, and everywhere)
MBU professors are at the tops of their field, and they love teaching students above all else. Your classmates will be a mix of fellow accelerated students as well as traditional-age college students and older adults — with an average of 17 students per class. The result is a meld of diverse backgrounds and knowledge that broadens your academic experience.
Get your college degree and:
- Work side-by-side with professors on research related to your major.
- Build your resume with internships, campus jobs, and service projects.
- Study abroad to deepen your understanding of diverse cultures and also give you an edge in the global market.
- Present your work at professional conferences and the MBU Capstone Festival.
Early College students are MBU students in every way, including in residence life. Most Early College students choose to live in a traditional residence hall. Until they’re 18 years old, female Early College students also have the choice of living in the fully supervised residence hall for our Program for the Exceptionally Gifted (PEG).
