Early College Credit Program

Wisconsin’s Early College Credit Program allows public high school juniors and seniors who meet certain requirements to take post secondary courses at a UW institution, a Wisconsin technical college, one of the state’s participating private nonprofit institutions of higher education, or tribally-controlled colleges. Approved courses count toward high school graduation requirements and college credit.

The program opens the door to greater learning opportunities for motivated students considering a technical career, wishing to begin college early, or preparing themselves to enter the workforce immediately after high school graduation.

Under the Early College Credit Program, a student does not pay for a college course if the school board determines the course qualifies for high school credit and is not comparable to a course already offered in the school district. If approved by the school board, the student can receive both high school and college credit upon successful completion of the course. A student who successfully completes their high school graduation requirements earns a high school diploma regardless of whether the requirements were met while attending a high school or college.
