Parkside Access to College Credit

Earn College Credits in High School

The Parkside Access to College Credit Program (PACC), is a concurrent enrollment program at the University of Wisconsin Parkside. PACC allows eligible high school students to earn college and high school credit by taking designated courses at their high school.  

PACC courses are real college courses that you will earn college credit for and will appear on a UW-Parkside transcript.  PACC courses are the same courses as those available at the UW-Parkside campus. Your high school teacher and a  UW-Parkside faculty member work together to develop these college-level courses within your high school.
