The High School College Credit Program (HSCCP) at Bowling Green State University provides high school students who do not participate in the Post Secondary Enrollment Options Program (PSEOP) an opportunity to take college-level coursework which strengthens and enriches their high school experience. Students in this program are eligible to take a maximum of 16 hours of coursework each semester during the academic year. In addition, summer enrollment is available through this program.
The High School College Credit Program is intended to complement rather than replace the high school college preparatory curriculum. To ensure maximum benefit to a student, a close working relationship is necessary among the student’s local school district, parents or guardians, and the University. It is the responsibility of all involved parties to maintain clear and continuous communication to guarantee that a student receives the greatest possible benefit from participation in the High School College Credit Program.
Students may enroll in this program for fall, spring, and/or summer semesters.
To be considered for admission to the High School College Credit Program, students must possess:
Freshmen and sophomores are permitted to take ONE CLASS per semester.
