Pre-College Programs

Do you want to get a taste of college, and spend some time on UCM's campus, while you're still in high school? UCM offers a wide range of pre-college programs to help you explore your options, have fun, meet new people, discover hidden talents, and prepare for the exciting world of college. Many of our programs give you the option of earning college credit, which can later be applied toward your degree. Others are just for the sheer fun of it.

Take Dual Credit Classes at Your High School

Through our Dual Credit program, high school juniors and seniors at select high schools can enroll in actual college courses that take place at their school during the regular school day. Students who enroll in Dual Credit get a head start on college course work, test their ability to succeed in college classes, and embark on a more challenging high school curriculum. Prior to enrolling in a course, review transfer policies at school you are considering attending as well as degree requirements for majors that you may be interested in to determine if it would be an appropriate course.
