Consider getting a jump start on college by knocking out a general education credit or exploring a course in your desired field.

While in high school, you’ll be able to take classes for free and get your feet wet on what college courses are like. Remember, though, your grade is part of your college transcript, so choose wisely and apply yourself! We recommend working with your admissions advisor to pick out the right classes for you.
