Entrance Criteria

High school juniors and seniors can participate in the College Credit in High School program. Students interested in the English/English Composition portion of the program need to pass an entrance test (given each spring at participating high schools) or earn a score of 25 or higher on the English portion of the ACT.

Student course eligibility criteria are determined by UW-Green Bay in collaboration with participating high schools. Examples of such eligibility criteria include passing a proficiency exam within the content area, having earned a particular grade point average, successfully completing prerequisite courses, demonstrating exceptional talent in the content area, or submitting validation from a high school faculty member that the student is qualified to take college course work in a content area.

Students who have completed UW courses taught in their high school will be considered for admission to UW institutions on the basis of the same criteria as other high school students.

Students are limited to taking a maximum of 12 credits per semester.

 

Student Application and Registration Process and Billing

The student application and registration process is facilitated by the CCIHS coordinator in conjunction with the high school. Applications are collected in batches from each high school in the spring of the year for the following academic year. An application does not obligate a student to take a course; it does allow a network account to be set up in preparation for registration.

The CCIHS coordinator then makes a visit at the start of each course to register students. The CCIHS coordinator will share important information about being a UW-Green Bay student and will also distribute folders with information to keep as a reference. Students will sign registration forms at this visit and then be officially enrolled as UW-Green Bay students. Signing a registration form also means that students must follow UW-Green Bay policies.

When registration is final, an invoice for tuition and fees owed will be sent by the UW-Green Bay Student Billing Office to the appropriate school official.

It is important for students to be aware that they are applying for and enrolling in a college class, and the expectations of the class will reflect this. The grade earned will become part of the student’s permanent college record.

 

Student Withdrawals

Once a student has submitted a registration form, an obligation to pay fees is in effect until such time as that obligation may be reduced by an official withdrawal or reduction of credit load. The amount refunded and fees owed are based on the length of the course and the week in which the student withdraws. Please contact your instructor and the CCIHS coordinator immediately in the event you wish to withdraw from or drop a course. Failure to notify our office can result in a grade of an “F” being issued on the student’s permanent college transcript.

 

Network Accounts for Students

All registered students at UW-Green Bay are given a campus network account that they can use to access campus resources such as the Student Information System, campus email, Desire2Learn (D2L), and various library resources.

Students will receive a letter with network account information after their applications have been processed.  A network account is set up at the time of application in preparation for registration.  Please keep this account information and bring it with you on the day the CCIHS coordinator visits the high school; more information regarding this account will be shared at that time.

Library Resources

Students have full access to all online and printed materials through our UW-Green Bay Cofrin Library while enrolled as a UW-Green Bay student. Online materials can be accessed using your username and password; printed materials can be checked out using your UW-Green Bay Passport ID card that can be obtained during a class visit to campus.

 

Transfer of Credit

Each university reserves the right to evaluate transfer courses according to its own criteria. In the University of Wisconsin System, for example, the decision to accept or deny the courses and credits may involve the content and level of the course, the quality of the student’s achievement or the appropriateness of the course to the student’s college program.

The Transfer Information System (TIS), maintained by the UW System, offers UW and Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) students the ability to see immediately if/how UW-Green Bay credits will transfer to any UW campus. Click here to enter the Transfer Information System and follow these steps:

  1. Click on: CREDIT TRANSFER WIZARDS
  2. Click on: COURSE WIZARD
  3. Enter UW-Green Bay and the Institution you would like to transfer to
  4. Select the department of the course you are taking
  5. Click on Match all Courses
  6. Look for your specific course number and title and review transfer information
    *Suggestion: Print the page to keep as a reference, and take it to your orientation/registration visit.

If you do not see your course within the TIS, please contact the school you will be attending to see how the course will transfer.

Once you complete your course(s) you will need to request that an official transcript be sent to the institution you will be attending. For details on how to request an official transcript, please visit the following website: http://www.uwgb.edu/registrar/transcripts

A bit of advice: Keep the syllabus and examples of your work in all courses.  If other universities need information on the course, send them copies of your work and the syllabus to prove your competence.

Tips for attending orientation/registration sessions

Grades

All final grades will be posted in the Student Information System. Using your campus network account, you will be able to view and print out an unofficial transcript from this location.

However, an official transcript of grades can only be obtained from the University Registrar. Upon completion of the course and once grades are posted in the UW-Green Bay Student Information System, you will need to request an official transcript. For details on how to request an official transcript, please visit the following website: http://www.uwgb.edu/registrar/transcripts
