A 17-year-old who passed his college admissions test at age 11 has become the youngest known graduate of Goshen College.

Mikol Aspinwall graduated Sunday from the Christian liberal arts college with a computer science degree.

The Phoenix native lived with his mother in Goshen during his four years at college, but some of his college friends didn’t know how young he was.

The South Bend Tribune reports that Aspinwall began high school at age 9 at an Arizona State University academy for gifted and talented students.

Goshen College communications professor Duane Stoltzfus says Aspinwall is memorable for his eloquence and modesty, calling him “somebody who is just very humble about his accomplishments.”

Aspinwall is now chasing his dream of attending graduate school at the University of Notre Dame.
