UW Oshkosh Early College Credit Program
The Early College Credit Program (ECCP), which was created by the State of Wisconsin Legislature. This program allows public and private school students in grades 9 through 12 to enroll in courses at institutions of higher education with fees and tuition for pre-approved courses shared by local school districts or private school, the state and in some cases the students. ECCP students attend college classes on campus, rather than on-site at their high schools.
To participate in the program on any UW Oshkosh campus, a student must apply to both the local school board or private school and apply to UW Oshkosh.
For more information on the state policy and regulations, visit the Early College Credit Program website.

Early College Credit Courses and the Student’s Academic Record
It is up to the school counselors and students to make sure they are enrolled in courses approved by the school and sections that fit with their high school schedule. Our enrollment system will let students know if they are missing prerequisites, which will often be the required placement tests in English, math and foreign language.
NOTE: If you enroll in a course not approved by the school board, you will be responsible for fees, tuition and books, as well as any penalties for late payment.
Courses taken as a University ECCP Student become part of the permanent University record and may affect subsequent admission to post-secondary institutions. Please be aware that a poor grade earned in a Early College Credit Program course could have a negative impact on a future admission decision for a student.
