Some of Howard University’s most successful students didn’t even complete their four year degree programs. Those include people like media mogul, Diddy and Blackish star, Anthony Anderson.

Anthony Anderson attended Howard University until 1993, but he didn’t get a degree. That is set up to change.

His son recently enrolled as a freshman that will graduate in 2022, following a campus visit in October 2017.

During an interview with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, Anthony Anderson explained he was unable to finish his time at Howard due to financial reasons which didn’t allow him to go back his senior year. He also announced that he has been working with Howard University officials including President Wayne Frederick to come up with an online curriculum that would allow him to complete his degree.

The goal is for Anthony Anderson to be able to graduate alongside his son, Nathan in 2022.

During The Tonight Show Interview Anthony Anderson joked, “So I have four years to finish one year of college.”

He also mentioned how proud he was of his son for following in his footsteps at his alma mater.
