Youth Options - College Credit for HS Students

If you are a motivated and academically qualified high school junior or senior, you may be eligible to take technical college credit courses under Youth Options while still in high school. This is a good way to get a head start on earning credit for college, and still earn credits for your high school diploma.

Youth Options eligibility requirements:

  • You must be enrolled at a public high school and have completed 10th grade.
  • You do not have a history of disciplinary problems and are not a "child-at-risk".
  • You are in good academic standing, and meet course entry requirements.
  • You have the written approval of your parent or guardian.
  • You must notify your school district by March 1 for fall enrollment and October 1 for spring enrollment.

Talk to your high school counselor for more information.
