Earn an Associate of Arts and high school diploma at the same time
Early college is a program in which qualified high school juniors and seniors enroll in college courses offered by the university. Students will be given the opportunity to complete 60 semester hours of college credits in four semesters, completing the requirements for an Associate of Arts degree at the same time that they complete their high school diploma.
Courses will be offered to a cohort of students from area high schools on the university campus. Course offerings will ensure that participating students will be able to return to their high school campus to participate in programs and athletics that take place in the afternoons.
