High School College Credit

There are several options to earn college credit while in high school. Please discuss each option with your high school counselor and determine which makes most sense for you.

Early College Credit Program (ECCP)

Beginning Fall 2018, high school students at public and private high schools in Wisconsin can earn college credit, while still in high school, through the Early College Credit Program (ECCP). A student selected for the program may be permitted to enroll at UW-Superior to take one or more courses for which the student may earn high school credit, post-secondary credit, or both. Under ECCP, the costs of the courses are shared among the institute of higher education, the school district or private school, the state, and in some cases the student’s family. Students can earn up to 18 credits total under ECCP.

How to apply:

  • Complete the UW System ECCP Participation Form and submit to your school counselor for approval.
    • TIP: Talk with your high school counselor to see which courses are appropriate and don’t forget to include the class number.
    • Deadlines: Your paperwork is due to your high school no later than February 1 (for Summer term), March 1 (for Fall term) and October 1 (for Spring term). You must complete this paperwork every semester you plan to participate in the program.
  • Apply online at apply.wisconsin.edu
    • Create an account and select UW-Superior.
    • Application and enrollment fees will be waived.
  • Submit an Official High School transcript and ACT Score (ACT is optional), as well as, official AP scores if courses you are interested in require pre-requisites or placement tests where you may have already met the requirement.
    • To qualify, you must have a 3.0 GPA. If you don't meet the criteria and would like to discuss your qualifications, please contact the Admissions Office.
  • **Placement testing may be required prior to enrollment in approved courses. 

Concurrent/Dual Enrollment

UW-Superior partners with several Wisconsin high schools to offer concurrent enrollment courses whereby students can earn high school and college credit simultaneously. These courses are approved through UW-Superior and taught by UW-Superior approved instructors in the participating high schools. Financial responsibility for the tuition is established in the MOU with each participating school.
