Welcome to Summer Advantage

“I would definitely recommend Summer Advantage to every incoming freshman. I got the credits and the confidence I need to succeed at High Point University.” – Myles B., Summer Advantage alum, HPU Class of 2022

Get Ahead. Stay Ahead. Summer Advantage.

Summer Advantage is High Point University’s exclusive pre-freshman year advancement program. Here are just some of the extraordinary advantages incoming students experience:

    • Earn up to 8 credits before your Freshman year begins, moving you ahead of your peers for class and dorm selection after your
      Freshman year
    • Establish a winning relationship with your Success Coach and our world-class faculty
    • Meet wonderful new friends from around the country and the world
    • Gain confidence in your ability to thrive at High Point University
    • Explore and enjoy our stunning campus
