Counselors and Districts

Southern Connecticut State University partners with many high schools and school districts to provide college courses for eligible high school students. With a signed agreement in place, students may earn up to 30 college credits by successfully completing dual enrollment courses at their high school or at SCSU on a space-available basis. Partner schools or districts may also choose to award high school credit for the courses held on SCSU’s campus. If your school or district is a partner of our Early College program, tuition for students is waived for Early College courses taught at your high school or at SCSU!

If your school or district is not on this list, please contact to request more information about becoming a partner.

The list of courses available for concurrent enrollment at high schools is available by contacting:  Each high school coordinator works directly with the Early College office to discuss curriculum. Interested faculty should complete the "interest form" available in the Early College Teachers section of this website.

In addition to concurrent enrollment courses offered at your high school, the following 100- and 200-level courses held at SCSU are also recommended by our faculty for Early College students coming to class at Southern. Coordinators should reach out to our admissions office with questions about course pre-requisites or placements.

High school coordinators must submit a list of eligible students to the Southern CT Early College Office as soon as possible, but no later than a few weeks prior to the start of a semester (please see Important Dates calendar). Recommendations may be submitted for students who meet the following criteria:

  • High School junior or senior
  • 3.0 GPA (B average) or higher
  • High school counselors may recommend participation in specific courses where students have demonstrated academic promise or successfully completed related college-level coursework with a 2.0 GPA (C average) or higher.

Early College high school coordinators should direct students to the instructions provided under the "Students and Families" tab. When the application is unavailable, students may complete a Early College Inquiry Form

Keep in mind the partnership agreement provides students with a waiver for up to 2 courses in fall and spring (this total is inclusive of courses taken in the high school and at Southern), and 1 course in summer. Since students are non-matriculated, visiting students, each may take up to 11 credits, however, they must pay the current part-time rate for the courses not covered by the waiver.
