High School Students

Earn high school and college credits at the same time

If you’re an academically accelerated high school student looking to get a jump start on your college career, then the College Credit Plus (CCP) Program may be a great option for you.

The CCP program at Urbana University provides you with an opportunity to take high school and college courses at the same time. Not only does this program allow you to earn college credits that can be applied directly toward a bachelor’s or an associate degree, but you'll also become familiar with the rigors of college-level coursework.

Through CCP, you can choose to earn only college credit or both high school and college credit. By building college credits early, it may be possible to finish your degree faster and save money along the way.

Taking CCP courses through Urbana University is free – there are no costs for tuition, books or fees – and students in grades 7-12 are eligible to enroll in the program.
