11-year-old California child graduates from college with three degrees
Tanishq graduated from American River College in Sacramento with three degrees in math, science and foreign languages.
An 11-year-old child from California became the youngest to graduate from an American college with three degrees in math, science and foreign languages.
Tanishq graduated from American River College in Sacramento alongside 1,800 students with three associate’s degrees, according to a report by newspaper USA Today.
The youngster was quoted by local channel KXTV: “[It] feels good to graduate with three associate’s degrees.”
He also reportedly said the achievement was not “much of a big thing” for him.
Tanishq came under the spotlight last year when he graduated from high school at the age of 10.
The Independent quoted a media report saying Tanishq was home-schooled by his mother after he felt bored in regular classrooms.
A spokesman for the American River College told NBC Bay Area said Tanishq could be considered “the all-time youngest.”
“The assumption is that he’s the all-time youngest,” Scott Crow said. “But we don’t have all the archives to completely confirm. He was definitely the youngest this year.”
Tanishq also plans to join a course in Calculus this summer, The Independent said.
