High school students can register for any undergraduate lower division courses approved for high school registrations on-campus or online. Self-paced courses are designed for self-motivated adult students with college experience, so this type of online class is not recommended for high school registrations, and thus not discounted.  After a student's 19th birthday, students still in high school are welcome to continue taking classes at the regular tuition rate.
