College Credit in High School has another record year
The UW-Green Bay College Credit in High School (CCIHS) program has another year of record enrollment with more than 1,500 students enrolling in UW-Green Bay credit classes through the concurrent enrollment program. Final enrollment numbers for the 2017-18 academic year show a 13% enrollment increase from last year. The CCIHS program partners with 40 Wisconsin high schools to offer college credit courses for high school students. These courses are taught by UW-Green Bay faculty approved high school teachers and allow students to get a head start on their college education. During the 2017-18 academic year, students saved more than $1 million in tuition by taking advantage of reduced tuition through the program. The largest areas of enrollment are modern languages followed by psychology, communications, human biology and English. UW-Green Bay faculty serve as faculty liaisons to provide high school teachers with a curricular connection to campus. The CCIHS program is directed by Meagan Strehlow from the Division of Continuing Education and Community Engagement.
