High School Plus

High School Plus saves time and money.

High School Plus saves time and money. It offers highly motivated students an opportunity to take college level courses that count toward a high school diploma and university transfer. Requirements: English proficiency, 16 years of age, and cannot have previously received a high school diploma.

What is High School Plus?

The High School Plus program allows international students to:

  • Fast Track: Enter college before finishing high school and graduate from university at least one year earlier than your high school classmates.
  • Save Time and Money: Get a Washington State high school diploma plus earn transferable university credit at the same time. Take classes that count for both high school and university transfer!
  • Two Degrees: Earn two degrees for the price and time of one. Graduate in just two years with a high school diploma plus a university transfer associate degree. Program typically requires no additional time.*

    *Depending on assessment and placement, students may need to take non-transferable, developmental classes. Students may also need to take a non-transferable class to complete the Culminating Project requirement.
