Give Yourself Some Credit – Some College Credit, That Is – While You’re in High School.

You’ve probably been wondering what it takes to be successful in college classes.

The St. Norbert College Credit Program (CCP) is a great opportunity for you to explore the pace of college before graduating from high school. You can take college classes as a high school student to expose yourself to college course work, and to give yourself a competitive edge for minimal costs.

Haven’t decided where you are going to college? That’s okay, credits from this program are transferable to a wide variety of institutions, thanks to St. Norbert College’s reputation for academic excellence. Plus, showing initiative by taking advanced classes like these looks great on ALL college applications - especially as you're competing for a spot at the college of your choice.

Benefits of CCP

  • Gain a competitive edge over other college applicants
  • Save on tuition and room and board- CCP students pay less than 5 percent of the standard cost of a 4-credit course. It may also reduced the amount of tuition paid when you get to college because when you transfer courses, that means fewer courses you have to take in college.

Here’s How It Works
Qualified teachers, specially selected and approved by St. Norbert College, teach the classes in English, mathematics, leadership studies and United States history at participating high schools in northeast Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The courses, four credits each, are the same courses designed for college students taking them at St. Norbert.

Assignments and academic expectations for the College Credit Program students are the same as those that St. Norbert College professors have for their own students. 

To learn more about the College Credit Program, contact the College Credit Program office at 920-403-4075 or collegecredit@snc.edu.
