“Why should I take a UWL concurrent enrollment course?”

Get a jump start on your college career without taking an “extra” class. Students in UWL’s concurrent enrollment courses fulfill high school requirements, while also earning actual transferrable college credits!

  • You may be able to complete college early, free up your schedule to take other courses of interest, or lighten your course load
  • Ease into college coursework from the comfort of your own school with known instructors
  • Colleges/universities from coast to coast accept these highly transferrable credits *

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

* In general, UWL course credits are highly transferrable to colleges and universities coast-to-coast.

Student's must verify that a specific concurrent enrollment course will transfer to the university or college to which the student applies.

** Exceptions to this limitation are the use of the university library and of state-of-the-art lab equipment. High school students enrolled in courses may be granted a library card to use in the campus library and may use the equipment in 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
