12-year-old boy, Clovis Hung, set to graduate from Fullerton College with 5 degrees

12-year-old boy set to graduate from college with 5 degrees.

Meet the newest graduate of Fullerton College; he can’t drive or grow a beard, but he’s highly accomplished.

On Saturday, the youngest person walking across the stage to accept their diploma during the commencement ceremony will be Clovis Hung, a 12-year-old wunderkind who will be graduating with five degrees.

The school says Hung was only nine years old when he enrolled at the community college as part of its Special Admit program, which allowed him to earn college credits while simultaneously completing his home school curriculum.

Despite the heavy workload that no doubt comes with being a child prodigy, Hung still finds the time to enjoy the usual day to day activities of a preteen boy.

He said: "I play basketball five days a week and sometimes a whole week because I have games. I also play games like Minecraft and Roblox and I also have Civil Air Patrol and Boy Scouting."

Hung was inspired to enroll at Fullerton College after seeing another young prodigy, Jack Rico, graduate from the school at the ripe old age of 13. Rico graduated with four degrees – a number Hung sought to surpass.

The pre-teen will be accepting five Associate of Arts degrees in History, Social Sciences, Social Behavior and Self-Development, Arts and Human Expression, and Science and Mathematics. 

Hung was inspired by a 13-year-old graduate who previously held the title when he finished his studies in 2020.

Of his impressive achievement, Hung said: "I also wanted to be the youngest graduate. I didn't expect to beat him."

Hung's mother, Song Choi, knew her son was exceptionally gifted and took him out of public school in 2020 to enroll him in the college.

Speaking of their youngest graduate, Fullerton College's Director of Campus Communications, Lisa McPherson said: "We're an enrolment institution and students that are K through eight - so before graduating high school - they can actually come to Fullerton College under a special process called special admit."
