Two Escambia Academy students have been selected to the University of Alabama Early College Fall 2022 Director’s List.
Patrick Byrd of Atmore and Timothy Doerr of Bay Minette were the two students selected, having met the required academic record of 3.6 or higher.
The director’s list recognizes students enrolled in classes through the UA Early College program. UA Early College allows high school students to get a head start on their college courses. High school sophomores, juniors and seniors enrolled in UA Early College can choose from more than 80 different online and on-campus courses and earn up to 30 hours of college credit.
All high school students who apply to and are admitted into UA Early College take their first course, UAEC 200, for free – saving each student more than $700. UAEC 200 is a five-week readiness course that ensures students are prepared for the rigors of college-level studies. Upon completion, students earn two credit hours from UA.
