Note on registration
Because of the demand for some courses and limitations on enrollment, degree-seeking students are given priority in course registration. High school special students register on a space-available basis, meaning enrollment in classes is not guaranteed.

Admission Criteria

High school students, grades 9-12, will be eligible to take courses during the fall, spring or summer semesters to earn college credit through the Early College Credit Program (ECCP). Eligible students may be permitted to enroll at one of our campuses to take one or more courses for which the student may earn high school credit, post-secondary credit or both.

To be considered for ECCP, students in 9th grade must have taken Algebra I in middle school and provide a recommendation letter from a school official. Students in grades 10-12 must have a 2.0 GPA or better in high school. All students must display a level of responsibility and maturity needed to succeed in a college-level course. If approved by the school board, the student can receive both high school and college credit or just college credit upon successful completion of the course. Students may not take remedial courses through ECCP.

Dual enrollment allows high school students to take a college-level course at their own high school, taught by a UW branch campus or UW Colleges Online instructor. Students receive college credit upon successful completion of their college-level class. The course is identical to the courses taught at the UW branch campuses or UW Colleges Online.

Concurrent enrollment credit allows high school students to take a college-level course right at their own high school, taught by a certified high school instructor. Students receive college credit upon successful completion of their college-level class. The course is identical to the courses taught at the UW branch campuses.
