Project Talent Program
The Project Talent Program at Whitworth University provides an opportunity for advanced high-school students in the Spokane area to take one college course per semester (fall and spring semesters only) during their junior and senior years of high school. It is a dual-enrollment program.
Students must meet certain academic criteria for acceptance into the Project Talent Program. The minimum GPA requirement is 3.5 for juniors and 3.0 for seniors, or demonstrated academic proficiency. Course enrollment is contingent upon available classroom space. Students' enrollment requests will be processed the evening prior to the first day of Whitworth classes. Students should have an alternative educational plan in the event that a chosen course is closed; Project Talent students are not allowed to petition course closures.

Under the Quick Links box in Pirate Port, you will find a set of instructions titled "Class Search Instructions," which will help you search for courses.
Please keep in mind that some courses have prerequisites. Refer to the university catalog to verify course prerequisites. These requirements must be met before a student is allowed to register for a course.
Interested students must submit the following items to be considered for admission to the Project Talent Program:
- Project Talent application (PDF);
