A variety of programs through which high school students are dually enrolled in both high school and college to earn both high school and college credit. Such programs make college more affordable for families and introduce students to higher level coursework before they immerse themselves in college life.
Early College Credit Program
The 2017 Wisconsin Act 59 eliminated the Course Options and Youth Options programs. The Youth Options statute (118.55) was renamed the Early College Credit Program. The statute allows Wisconsin public and private high school students to take one or more courses at an institution of higher education for high school and/or college credit. All changes are effective 7/1/2018.
For a detailed understanding of the new program, please review the Early College Credit Program webpage.
