Program Overview

Students can get a head start on college by completing their high school degree and earning college credits at the same time.  Our program is open to all students 16 years of age or older who have not yet earned a high school diploma.  Classes taken in a student’s home country or while studying abroad may count toward the diploma.  The program is designed to fit each student’s previous high school education.  Students often can take college courses to satisfy high school and college requirements.



No high school experience is required.  However, students may get high school credits for classes already taken.  Please submit official high school transcripts in English for every year of high school completed, including 9th grade or the final year of junior high school. 

Transcripts must be submitted as soon as possible for students to be placed in the correct classes. Click here to view an example of an official transcript.
