The Innovation Track provides a guided pathway to completing up to 30 hours of college credit while in high school. Upon high school graduation, an Innovation Track student can potentially complete a four-year college degree within three years.
UCM Dual Credit saves you close to 70 percent tuition per course.* There is no application fee for dual credit students, and, in some cases, your textbooks could be provided free. Contact your high school counselor for details.
