UW Oshkosh Early College Credit Program

Campus PhotosThe 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.

Cost

Cost for ECCP Courses. Credit is earned for high school and college. UW Oshkosh will charge students 1/3 of resident tuition at the Oshkosh Campus and 1/2 at the access campuses (Fox Cities & Fond du Lac). School will pay 75%, State will pay 25%, student will pay nothing.

The UW Oshkosh Admissions Office will provide the University Student Account Office with a list of students and their school district for those students admitted to the Early College Credit Program. Each school district will be invoiced directly by the Student Account Office. No payment should be submitted until the invoice is received. UW Oshkosh Admissions Office will report all course enrollments to the school board.

NOTE: If you enroll for 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.

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. The Admissions Office will send grade transcripts to local school boards within 10 to 15 days of the end of each term.

 

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.
