Early College Program
Idaho State University's Early College Program started offering dual credits in 1994, in two local high schools. Today, we have expanded throughout the state offering dual credits to more than 4,000 students in 40 high schools. Now more than ever students are taking advantage of starting college while in high school. Many students can obtain the equivalent of one or two semesters worth of work, and some also take enough credits to earn an associate degree, before they graduate from high school! There are endless possibilities through dual credit!
Student participants must be 16 years old or have completed half of their high school graduation requirements. The Early College Program also requires a 2.7 GPA to participate. Students wishing to take dual credit courses through ISU must be registered in both the high school and college course. Students are admitted to the Early College Program after completing a one-time application and submitting a signed consent form. Students are required to register through BengalWeb prior to the published deadlines for each class in order to receive college credit.
