High School Concurrent Credit

The High School Concurrent Credit Program through SDSU allows high school juniors and seniors, who meet the established admission requirements, to take courses for University credit. With high school approval, college courses may receive dual credit under SDSL (13-28-37). High school students typically participate in 100 and 200 level courses. Signatures from a parent or guardian and a school official are required before proceeding with admission and course registration.
