The School-Based Scholars program is committed to making sure that high school students who are enrolled or thinking about enrolling in our program are taking courses that are best suited to the needs of the student. To that end, we have several advising resources, including a dedicated special populations advisor, to help you pick the courses that will best serve you.
Our dedicated special-populations advisor, Mr. Casey Thompson, will be able to help you identify the courses that will be best for you based on your high school course requirements, NKU general education courses, and/or your prospective major.

We've partnered with several campus departments to develop career exploration tracks. Students interested in majoring in one of these areas may wish to enroll in a track to get up to 12 hours toward a major completed, depending on the track.
