Early College Credit Program

Chase the Future

Gain an early college advantage.

Early College Credit Program (ECCP) is a State program, providing Wisconsin public and private students in grades 9-12 an opportunity to take courses online or in-person at one of the UW-Green Bay campuses for high school and/or college credit. Students will need to be approved by their school district and have a 3.0 grade point average (GPA) cumulatively or in relevant coursework.

ECCP Application Deadlines

Remember to check your your email for information and next steps.

Students will need to work with UW-Green Bay and their school districts to ensure all paperwork is submitted within designated state timeframes. One of our ECCP Coordinators must register students for courses. Students may not register themselves.

Course start and end dates may vary. Check Schedule of Courses. Drop dates may also be staggered. Consult the Registrar's calendars. If you're unsure or have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out.
