WISCONSIN'S EARLY COLLEGE CREDIT PROGRAM (ECCP)
Beginning Fall 2018, high school students at public and private high schools in Wisconsin can earn college credit through the Early College Credit Program (ECCP). A student selected for the program may be permitted to enroll in a UW System institution, or an alternative private, non-profit institution of higher education (IHE) to take one or more courses for which the student may earn high school elective credit, post-secondary credit, or both. Under ECCP, the costs of the courses are shared among the IHE, the school district, the state, and in some cases the student’s family.
HOW TO APPLY FOR THE EARLY COLLEGE CREDIT PROGRAM:
- Request information from UW System campuses where you’d like to take classes.
- Talk with your high school guidance counselor to see if it’s a good fit for you. They will consider how the class aligns with academic plans and whether you meet the pre-requisite for taking a college level class. Obtain an ECCP participation form from your high school counselor.
- Submit your completed form by March 1 for fall semester or October 1 for spring semester to your school officials.
- Submit your completed form by February 1 (ECCP Only) for the summer semester to your school officials.
- Apply to the campus where you’d like to take classes (meet all deadlines and their campus-specific requirements).
- Submit high school transcripts along with any prerequisite documentation (AP scores).
- Enroll in your class (Only after approval has been granted).
