College in the Schools

  • College in the Schools (CIS) allows juniors and seniors to take free college-level courses at their high school through partnerships between high schools and local colleges and universities.

    CIS classes are a good deal because:

    • Students may earn both high school and college credit. This can save you time and money when you actually get to college.
    • The course work is college-level. You may do better in college classes later because you'll know what to expect.
    • You take college-level courses in your high school. This gives you a taste of college within the safety of your high school walls.

    Who is eligible to participate?

    You must be a high school junior or senior and in the top 20% of the your class.
