UW-La Crosse grants High School students enrolled in this program the same academic rights and privileges granted to other UWL students. Dual Credit students do not pay segregated fees; however, so most on campus services provided by these fees are not available to them.*

*Exceptions to this limitation are the use of the university library and of state of the art lab equipment. High school students enrolled in dual credit courses may be granted a library card to use in the campus library and may use the equipment in dual credit courses for which there is a lab component.

What do past participants have to say?

“.. nothing prepared me for college more than actual college classes. After a year of college, I would say that the workload of the dual-enrollment class is comparable to what I have had to do for my classes each semester”

- Cameron Robaczewski, University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, Class of 2019

“I think the greatest value of this program is priming high school students for what college will be like.“

- Student in dual credit CHEM 103 at West Salem High School, 2014-2015
