Online Courses for High School Students

Dual credit means students get both high school and college credit from one course.

What Is Dual Credit?

Dual credit means students get both high school and college credit from one course.

Many high school students take courses through UAF to get a jump start on their college career and meet their high school requirements. As an accredited institution, we offer general education courses that not only apply toward core requirements at UAF, but are also accepted at other institutions of higher education. These online courses offer great flexibility for the busy student — you can take your courses from anywhere in the world at any time.

Next Steps

  1. Talk to your parents and your high school counselor about this opportunity.
  2. Submit the Fall 2018 Registration form.
  3. Have your parents complete this consent form.

It’s that easy… we’ll take it from here. You can expect to receive the following from us:

  • Your University of Alaska ID number
  • Help coordinating any placement exams you may need
  • Information on next steps (getting your books, paying tuition and fees, getting access to UAF’s online learning system, etc.)

I chose to enroll in dual credit because it gave me the greatest bang for my buck. I was anxious to get into more in-depth studies as soon as possible and the flexibility of UAF eLearning allowed that. Higher education while knocking out high school credits, what is there not to like?
