Advanced Education for High School Students

Courses that provide enrichment and advancement in educational experience may be offered on a limited basis to high school students who have demonstrated academic achievement. The student must be 16 years of age or have completed their sophomore year of high school prior to the first day of the college semester. Advanced education students may not take remedial classes, those classes which need to be repeated because of low grades, and classes offered in the student's own school.

High school students should request information from their high school counselor regarding eligibility and an advanced education application. Advanced education students should then submit online a completed advanced education application form which has been signed by a parent and by a high school counselor or principal, an official transcript plus work in progress, and a written statement describing how the eligibility criteria are met and why they wish to take classes.

After the advanced education application has been approved, the student may register for classes. Students must enroll in person at Admissions & Records. An advanced education student is not considered a continuing student when registering for classes for any subsequent semesters. It is the responsibility of the advanced education student to become familiar with, and aware of, all the requirements, processes, and deadlines pertaining to advanced education.
