On Monday, the rapper announced plans to apply to the Ivy League university on Twitter, writing, “Im applying to Harvard In a couple days. And I really am excited. !”
A rep for the rapper confirmed to Page Six that he intends to apply to the university’s architecture program.
The tweet comes a day after the rapper taught a Master Class on creativity at the Cambridge, Mass., school, video of which was shared on social media by students.
Scott had previously spoken of his ambition to attend the university in a 2017 interview with Show Studio’s “In Camera.”
“Me and my friend Dozie are supposed to go to Harvard, go to architecture school at Harvard,” Scott said. “I think after my third album, I’m going to do it after my third album.”
That third album, “Astroworld,” has dominated the Billboard charts since it was released Aug. 3. On Monday, it returned to the top of the Billboard 200 for a third non-consecutive week.
