Welcome to Heritage University’s College in the High School Program

Are you:

  • A high school junior or senior?
  • Interested in earning both high school and college credit in the same class?
  • Doing the above FOR FREE?

If you answered yes to all of the above, then we have just the program for you!

The College in the High School (CiHS) program at Heritage University (HU) provides access for advanced study for qualifying high school students in a manner that minimizes enrollment barriers. The CiHS program helps students increase preparedness for college through exposure to college-level work as provided through HU. In addition, students can earn college credit when their performance demonstrates the required competencies for the HU courses. Heritage University offers this great opportunity to students at no charge.

By participating in CiHS, high school students can potentially earn BOTH high school credits and college credits from HU for a college transcript. Students earn credits from HU when they complete all required work with a grade of “C” or better, as determined by HU faculty assisting their high school teacher. Grades of “C” or lower will not earn HU credit and no college transcript will be created. This maximize the student benefit for a successful performance and minimize student risk for unsuccessful attempts at the college level work.

All high school juniors and seniors are eligible to participate in the CiHS program. High school sophomores can participate in consultation with the lead HU faculty member in charge of the course in question.

齐天娱乐国际官网Students are not charged for participation or for college credits earned. Additionally, the program includes one transcript sent to the college of the student’s choice.

齐天娱乐国际官网The CiHS program is available during HU fall and spring semesters.
