Accelerated Program  

 

The Accelerated High School Program allows eligible high school students the opportunity to earn college credit while still in high school. College credit earned through the Accelerated program may not substitute for high school credit. High school students enrolled in the Accelerated program must pay normal tuition and fees as required by the College. Students must have successfully completed the 10th grade, they must have a minimum cumulative 3.00, “B”, average and be recommended by their principal, and they may enroll only in courses for which the high school prerequisites have been completed. Students must take the COMPASS placement test and place in eligible courses. Students who have taken the ACT and provide scores of at least 20 in English and 20 in reading and 20 in mathematics will exempt the COMPASS test.
