If approved by your high school or home-school program, you may also receive high school credit for these courses.  Check with your high school counselor regarding this option.

Advantages of the Program

  • You can complete a college certificate or degree more quickly because you've started college while in high school or being home-schooled.
  • While you must pay tuition and fees, this program provides greater flexibility than the Dual Credit program because you can enroll in 900-level developmental courses to help you improve skills and be more successful in college-level courses.  Please keep in mind that as a College and Career Bound student you do not qualify for financial aid .
