This article reviews research about how students who enter college early perform academically and socially. Research results suggest that early entrants continue to achieve at high levels in college. Also, most students make the adjustment to the social scene on campus easily and have friendships with typically aged college students. Research suggests that early entrants students tend to continue on to graduate school and use the time gained from early entrance for further academic opportunities. Future research should focus on studying under-achievers and the early career productivity of early entrants. The decision to enter college early is one of matching a students needs and abilities to the appropriate environment.
