High school students have several options to enroll in University of Wisconsin System courses while still in high school, also known as dual credit or dual enrollment. Campus-specific programs offer UW college courses in high schools (CCIHS), taught by university-approved instructors. The Early College Credit Program (ECCP) allows Wisconsin high school students to take courses at UW System, tribal, or private, nonprofit Wisconsin higher education institutions. And, academically talented 11th and 12th graders can apply directly to UW System institutions as a special student. Information about high school students taking UW courses is shown below.
In addition to enrolling in UW courses (shown below), high school students can earn college credit by examination through Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate coursework offered at some high schools or through College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) exams offered at UW institutions. High school students interested in Wisconsin Technical College System courses can enroll through Transcripted Credit or Start College Now programs.
