Early College Program

The Early College program offers academic enrichment opportunities for qualified high school students. Dual credit courses allow high school students the ability to earn college credit, along with high school credit while continuing their other courses and activities. Earning college credit while in high school can accelerate a student's degree completion and help students adapt early to the rigor of College level study.

Idaho State University grants all qualified high school students a partial fee waiver allowing high school students to pay reduced fees for course registration. Note: In some cases, financial assistance may be available through school foundations or other programs. Please check with your high school counselor for details or contact the Early College Program.

Early College Advising

Attention ECP Students

Please remember that dual credit registration means an official college transcript is being created with an ISU grade assigned for each course. College-level courses require extra effort and personal responsibility. When students enroll in college, they are advised to study for two-three hours outside class for every hour in class. Dual credit students are responsible for withdrawing by the established deadline if they transfer out of a class for which they have registered for ISU credit.

We want to encourage students to be sure that this opportunity for a head start on their college education leads to a record of excellence as well as a classroom experience that gives them an advantage when they enroll in college after high school graduation.

ECP students: for more information about the Idaho Dual Credit Program and the institutions involved, please review the Idaho Dual Credit Brochure (pdf).
