Nick Cannon is about to be schooled … literally.  The Wild ‘N Out host has enrolled as a freshman at Howard University, and attended his first day of class Monday.

Cannon, 35, announced the news via his Instagram page over the weekend, rocking a pair of fresh Timberland boots and Louis Vuitton backpack. “You Know!!!! #HU2020. My First Day as a Freshman!!! Howard University Class of 2020.”

Cannon told Page Six of the decision to get his degree:

I am always seeking new challenges and continual growth and decided to obtain my first college degree from an institution that had a proven legacy of producing great minds. I have friends, mentors and colleagues who attended Howard University. I have heard about the famed Howard Homecoming since I was a kid growing up in California and knew that Howard would be the perfect place for me to further my education. I look forward to this new journey in my life and am excited about the possibilities ahead.

Despite his celebrity status, the father of two went through the same application process as everyone else. “No one gets special treatment, no matter who they are,” a source told the magazine.

The University will, however, work with him on his schedule since he’ll be juggling television shows and other projects. Cannon will be a part of the communications school and is slated to graduate in 2020.

No word on if he plans on joining the school’s famed marching band. That’s a reference to his film Drumline for you kids born in the ’90s.
