There are a lot of colleges that coordinate with high schools in order for students to earn college credits that would apply toward their freshman year at college. The best way to find out about this program is probably to talk to your high school counselor and find out which colleges would participate in their area. I know a lot of college students who have actually earned enough credit to actually, basically get them into their second semester of their freshman year. So if you're really interested in getting a step ahead in your first freshman college year, I would talk to your college counselor and start earning some of those credits right now.

¿Puedo recibir créditos universitarios de las clases del intituto? Jeff Leichty, Director de Información Tecnológica, Indiana Tech
Hay muchas universidades que se coordinan con los institutos para que los estudiantes reciban créditos universitarios que apliquen para su primer año en la universidad. La mejor manera de saber sobre este programa es hablar con su consejero del instituto y conocer qué universidades participarían en su área. Conozco a muchos estudiantes universitarios que, de hecho, han conseguido los suficientes créditos para básicamente empezar desde el segundo semestre del primer año. Así que si está realmente interesado en dar un paso hacia adelante en su primer año universitario, hablaría con su consejero universitario y empezaría a obtener algunos de esos créditos ahora.
