EARLY COLLEGE CREDIT PROGRAM
Beginning Fall 2018, high school students at public and private high schools in Wisconsin can earn college credit through the Early College Credit Program (ECCP). A student selected for the program may be permitted to enroll in UW-Parkside, 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 nonprofit institution of higher education (IHE), the school district or private school, the state, and in some cases the student’s family.
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-requisite or placement tests that you may have already met the requirement for.
You must have a 3.25 cumulative GPA, or a 23 ACT to participate in this program.
Turn in all paperwork by the deadlines below:
- District Paperwork Deadline: Your paperwork is due to your high school no later than March 1 (for fall enrollment) or October 1 (for spring enrollment). You must complete this paperwork and a UW-Parkside online application every semester you plan to participate in the program.
- Parkside Application Deadline: Your online application to Parkside is due no later than June 1 (for fall enrollment) or December 1 (for spring enrollment.). ECCP is not offered during the summer term at UW-Parkside.
