Interested in taking college classes while still in high school? SCSU Early College provides high school students with the opportunity to explore subjects that they can’t study in high school. With a written agreement in place between Southern Connecticut State University and a partner school or district, eligible high school students may earn college credit for up to three SCSU courses delivered at their high school (for $65 per course) or taken at SCSU (for free) on a space-available basis. The partner school or district may also choose to award high school credit for the SCSU course(s).

Southern Connecticut State University courses taught at partner school districts or high schools are identical to the courses taught at the SCSU campus. High school teachers delivering SCSU courses at their high school do so as SCSU adjunct faculty and must meet the qualifications and requirements set for Southern Connecticut State University adjunct faculty members.
