After the hour-long recognition ceremony, students will have lunch on campus and will be able to attend a Major Fair that showcases the wide variety of NKU academic programs. The grand finale for the day will be an opportunity to join in the NKU Celebration of Student Research and Creativity to see the endless possibilities that NKU students of all majors have to excel in and out of the classroom

The School-Based Scholars program allows eligible high school students to take NKU college classes before graduating from high school. Students may take up to eight classes at their respective high schools, the NKU Grant County Center, and the Highland Heights campus at reduced tuition rates. To be eligible to continue in the program, students must achieve a grade of C or higher in each School-Based Scholars course.
