College Challenge

Information for Educators


College Challenge is a win-win program for high schools, students, and the University.

High school students earn college credit (at a significantly reduced rate) and high school credit simultaneously for courses offered in their high schools. Tuition fee waivers are available for students eligible for free or reduced lunch programs.  Please review the College Challenge Student Guide for all program details. 

High school teachers enhance their courses and engage in professional development in their disciplines.

The University has the opportunity to create new lines of communication with prospective college students, high school principals, guidance counselors, and teachers.
