College Credit in High School
Youth Options will no longer be an operational program as of June 30, 2018.  Due to the need for high school students to take college-level courses while in high school new programs have been developed for the Wisconsin Technical College system and the University of Wisconsin system. See the information below for each of these institutions.

Turbocharge with College Credit

Turbocharge with College Credit is a K-16 partnership between the Green Bay Area Public Schools, Northeast Wisconsin Technical College and the University of Wisconsin - Green Bay with a shared transformational vision to create a college going culture. It is an intentional effort by the partners  to successfully transition high school graduates to postsecondary education by having them earn college credit towards a certificate, credential or degree upon graduation. Click here for more information.

NWTC "Start College Now" Program

“Start College Now” will allow high school students the opportunity to take college courses at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College. The process is very similar to Youth Options. 38.12 (14) will lay out all the aspects of the program.   

Students looking to take courses in the fall semester must fill out and turn in the application by March 1, 2018. For spring semester courses the same application is used, however the due date is October 1, 2018. Visit the NWTC "Start College Now" website to view eligibility requirements, class choices, and more information.

University of Wisconsin "Early College Credit Program"

Beginning Fall 2018, high school students at public and private high schools in Wisconsin can earn college credit through the Early College Credit Program (ECCP). A student selected for the program may be permitted to enroll in a UW System institution, or an alternative private, non-profit institution of higher education (IHE) to take one or more courses for which the student may earn high school credit, post-secondary credit, or both. 

Students wishing to apply for the Early College Credit Program at a UW System institution should visit for more information and to view the application.
