12-year-old boy graduates from US university with 5 degrees, sets outstanding record

12-year-old boy Clovis Hung has made history as the youngest person to graduate from Fullerton College in the United States. He bagged five degrees from the university.

Clovis Hung bagged his Associate of Arts degrees in History, Social Sciences, Social Behavior and Self-Development, Arts and Human Expression, and Science and Mathematics from Fullerton College, Orange County in the United States.

Clovis is the youngest of 900 students who graduated from the university. He started attending Fullerton College at the age of 9. His mother withdrew him from a public school claiming her son was highly self-motivated and goal-oriented to attend a traditional public school.

He took part in the “Special Admit program” in the university which allowed him to take courses in the school while being homeschooled by his mother with the curriculum.

When Clovis was admitted into the university, some of his professors were worried the young boy would be intimidated by his fellow classmates due to the age difference but they were surprised at how well he was received by them.

“At first, I was a little worried about how he would relate to the other students given the age and developmental differences, however, those concerns were unfounded,” Fullerton Biology Professor, Kenneth Collins said.

“Clovis has been a great mixture of ‘kid’ and college student.  He is mature enough that the other students take him seriously, but enough of a kid that they look after him like a younger brother and cheer him on,’’ Kenneth added.

Clovis said he was initially nervous about taking physical college courses because of his age, but with time he adjusted with the college life because of how his classmates accepted him.

“I instantly fell in love with college life. So, I challenged myself to take more classes, When I had questions, I asked them, and if they had questions, they’d ask me, they treated me like a little brother. “Clovis said.

After he got adapted to the college life, Clovis took more classes and eventually was accepted into the Honors Program, where he was did amazingly well.

Outside his academic achievements, Clovis recently joined the Civic Air Patrol. He said his career goals includes being an aerospace engineer, piloting, or pediatrics.
