Early College Program


The Early College Program offers dual credit courses to high school students at their high school, on an ISU campus, and on-line. Before a student can register, they must complete the application process and receive a BengalWeb username and password. Some courses may require a passing placement score. These scores must be submitted to the Early College Program Office prior to registering for the class. Please follow the 5-step process to ensure that you are registered for your class(es).

5 Step Registration Process:
