APPLY NOW

Complete the online application! This step indicates your interest to take your course for college credit at your high school. You can check here for courses offered at your high school. Please make sure to check with the instructor that you meet course requirements. NOTE: If you took a course previously through the CCIHS program, or taking more than one at your school, you only need to complete the application one time.

REGISTER

A UW-Green Bay representative will visit your classroom and have you complete a registration form. This allows you to be enrolled in the UW-Green Bay CCIHS course you want to take for college credit (a registration form is required for each course). Participating schools and classes are listed for your convenience.

 

PAY TUITION​

This course is offered at a reduced tuition! You will pay the tuition for your course to your high school as instructed by your teacher.
 

 

TRANSFER CREDITS

The college credits you earn will transfer to all UW schools and to most private and out of state schools. You should contact the university or college you’re interested in attending to learn how your credits will transfer. If you’re taking a world language course you can earn retroactive credits. Earn a B or better and receive 11 additional credits! After you graduate high school and are ready to go to a college or university, you need to send your official transcript to that school.​

A CCIHS Teacher on a Mission Earns Her School a Gold Standard Challenge Grant​

Class wins gold standard grant challenge

Alana Eder is an approved teacher with UW-Green Bay's College Credit in High School (CCIHS) program. She was on a mission to make sure high school students at Oconto High School received education in personal finance at a college level. Luckily she had the support of her principal, her school district, Mussie Teclezion, Associate Professor, Karl Schindl, Professor, both in the Austin E. Cofrin School of Business, and Crystal Williams, Program Specialist for College Credit in High School.

Alana partnered with her principal, Adam DeWitt, and school counselors to persuade their school board to adopt a personal finance course as a formal graduation requirement that all students take. Superintendent Emily Miller endorsed the course, stating, "This is a wonderful opportunity for our students. It aligns with our goal of bridging our students' learning to real life. It also supports our goal of providing pathways to our colleges.”

Oconto High School is the 19th high school nationwide to receive a Gold Standard Challenge Grant from Next Gen Personal Finance (NGPF).

Successful completion of Alana's course "Career and Finance" not only satisfies a high school graduation requirement but earns her students three transcript credits at UW-Green Bay, transferable to most colleges of their choice.

Eder, a personal finance instructor with an advanced degree, worked with Teclezion, Schindl and Williams to get accredited in CCIHS, and had this to say, "Thanks for the partnership UW-Green Bay! I am so extremely fortunate to work with such amazing people and truly appreciate all of your support, guidance and leadership! I am extremely grateful for all of you! Crystal made it extremely easy on my end to be able to offer college credit to our students and I appreciate that!"  Full story
