UW System offers opportunities for high school students to take college credits while still in high school. This may be through a variety of different programs including:
- Early College Credit Program (ECCP)
- Cooperative Academic Partnership Program (CAPP)
- Partners in Education (PIE)
- UW-Green Bay’s College Credit in High School (CCIHS) initiative
- UW-La Crosse’s dual-credit courses for high school students
- UW-Parkside’s Access to College Credits (PACC) program
If you’re interested in taking courses for personal interest, to enhance your career, to update or renew a license, or to prepare for admission as a degree-seeking student, you’ll need to apply as a Special Student.
Prior to registering for a course, you should confirm that credits from a UW System institution will transfer. This is done by working with your current institution and the UW System campus where the course is offered.
