There are many ways a high school student may earn college credit while still in high school. The most common ways are through Concurrent Enrollment and AP testing. Concurrent Enrollment allows high school students to simultaneously earn high school and college credit for designated courses. RSU also awards credits on scale based on AP test scores. For specific information regarding earning or earned college credits reach out to the Admissions Office or your high school counselor.
