    Be aware of the timelines required for admission, registration, financial aid and scholarship eligibility, and graduation.

    college advisor to plan certificate or degree pathway.
  • …I was able to graduate from high school with my diploma, along with my college associates degree. I was able to fulfill my high school credits and college credits at the same time. The program was a great introduction to what college life is like. It was very challenging, but it taught me to be more responsible in my schoolwork and in time management…
    … I think the program is a great opportunity for anybody who is looking for a challenge, and wants to get a head start on his or her college education.
