University Credit for High School Students

University Credit for High School Students (Dual Credit) is an initiative developed by Andrews University to celebrate the addition of Griggs International Academy to the Andrews family. This program is an amazing opportunity for academy juniors and seniors to earn Andrews University credit for $100 per credit hour!

Why online/dual university credit?

• Transition from high school to university is seamless
• Gain skills necessary for success at the university level
• Higher likelihood of earning a high school diploma and university degree
• Students can validate their ability to complete university-level work
• Students have a head start on meeting core requirements
• Tuition is only $100 per credit hour

University credit courses for high school students are:

• Interactive online (computer and internet access is required)
• Instructor-led through the School of Distance Education
• Paced with biweekly assignment deadlines and weekly quizzes

Courses are capped to 20 students per section to maximize interactivity. Additional sections will be added as needed where possible.
