UWEC Requirements

Early College Credit Program allows high school students to earn post-secondary credits at colleges and universities. The Early College Credit Program is available to students in grades 9-12 in the summer, fall and spring (students are considered to be in grade 9 immediately upon completion of grade 8).  This program develops a college and/or university transcript for high school students.  Once students are enrolled in this program, they work solely with the college/university. Please keep the following state requirements in mind regarding these programs:

  1. The District will only approve payment for courses that are not comparable to ECASD courses, as determined by ECASD.  If a course is approved, ECASD will pay for tuition, fees, and textbooks.
  2. Approved courses may only be used to meet ECASD elective graduation requirements. For the Early College Credit Program, students who have already met their elective graduation requirements are required to pay 25% of the cost of tuition, fees, and textbooks.
  3. Students who fail a course will be required to reimburse ECASD for all course costs (tuition, fees and textbooks).
  4. Students may earn up to 18 post-secondary credits TOTAL between the Early College Credit Program and Start College Now during their high school careers.  Each post-secondary credit will earn the student ¼ ECASD credit.
  5. Applications will not be accepted after the due date, and they must be submitted to their counselor.
  6. There is no guarantee that a student will be able to enroll in the post-secondary course after it is approved by ECASD.  The most common reason for a student not being able to take a course after ECASD approval is that the post-secondary institution does not have space in a class.  If a student is not able to be admitted to a class for this reason their application may not be amended.
