High school special students

If you are looking to get ahead of the game and take college courses while still in high school we have options for you.

  • Early College Credit Program (ECCP)--ECCP is a program for students enrolled in a public or private high school. Before being admitted, you must receive approval from your school to take the desired courses. You may earn both high school and college credit for each course, or just college credit. The majority of the cost will be covered by your school's district/state.
  • Fill out a UW System application online - Make sure to correctly select Early College Credit Program. Deadlines: June 1 for the fall semester, December 1 for the spring semester, and May 1 for the summer session. (Early College Credit Program students may have earlier dates to notify their school boards.) The Admissions Office must receive all paperwork by the deadline date. Approval by your school does not guarantee admission to the University. 
  • Send an OFFICIAL transcript of your high school academic record.
  • Fill out the UW System Early College Credit Program and High School Special Agreement Form and gather appropriate signatures.

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.

Undergraduate special students — not seeking a degree

Do you want to take some courses for personal enrichment or professional development?  Enrolling as a Special Student could be a great option for you!

You are considered an undergraduate Special Student if you graduated from a recognized high school, or have the educational equivalent, are not currently seeking a degree, and want to take undergraduate coursework. Please note that special students are not eligible for financial aid.

  • Fill out a UW System application online - Make sure to correctly select Special Student. Applications are typically accepted until the first day of classes. 

 

Because of the demand for some courses and limitations on enrollment, degree-seeking students will be given priority over Special Students.

Some courses require permission to enroll from the department or an instructor. If a course you would like to take requires permission to enroll, please contact the academic department offering that course.
