Become a Titan
Earn college credits in high school while working toward an associate’s or bachelor’s degree at UW Oshkosh.
The Early College Credit Program (ECCP), allows public and private high school students (grades 9 through 12) to enroll in in-person, online or in a blended format courses at UW Oshkosh. 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.
COSTS – The benefit to this program is that the State of Wisconsin shares the fees and tuition cost of pre-approved college courses with the local school districts or private school, and the state and in some cases the students.
HOW DOES THIS DIFFER FROM CAPP OR AP COURSES?
ECCP students attend college classes on campus, rather than on-site at their high schools. Not sure what program is right for you? Compare all of the UW Oshkosh options.
It is no surprise that UW Oshkosh is one of the top schools for ECCP high school students.

Applying to the Early College Credit Program is easy. We can walk you right through each step.
#1 - Connect with your high school
Talk with your high school counselor about your eligibility. Only the school district can approve a course for payment under ECCP. It is your responsibility to obtain all clearances for the enrollment from the high school. Submit the UW System ECCP participation form to the local school board no later than:
- March 1 for fall term classes
- October 1 for spring term classes
- February 1 for summer term classes.
Indicate which campus location
(Oshkosh, Fox Cities, or Fond du Lac) you want to take classes through (online or in-person).
Since popular classes often fill up fast, it’s a good idea to seek approval for several courses at once.
WHY I LIKED ECCP!
Being an ECCP student gave me good connections with people with similar interests. I liked taking courses on campus (it was easier to study with others) and connecting with professors.
I highly recommend this program to other high school students, as I believe it made me a better student. You do need to be very committed to the work as you will be attending a college campus which is different than the high school environment.

GETTING AHEAD OF THE CROWD
It was nice to gain college experience while in high school. I felt like it smoothed that transition between high school and college. Additionally earning college credits helped cut costs while in college.
I really liked flexibility of the college schedule and loved the amount of spaces available for studying between classes.
I took a variety of course formats (online and in-person). I think you will need to decide what type of course is good for you.

Courses taken as a University ECCP student become part of the student’s permanent university record and may affect subsequent admission to post-secondary institutions.
Please be aware that a poor grade earned as an ECCP student could have a negative impact on a future admission decision.
Getting Involved on campus
All ECCP students can request a TitanCard, the official ID card for UW Oshkosh. With a TitanCard students can access UW Library online resources, attend UWO sporting and cultural events, receive local discounts and more. LEARN MORE
