The Early College Program provides qualified high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to enroll in college courses on the UMM campus. Students may often receive both high school and college credit for their UMM courses, giving them a jump start toward their college degrees. The UMM Early College office works closely with high school guidance counselors, and students receive full academic support both at their high schools and on the UMM campus. Through the Early College Program, students discover the rewards of learning at the collegiate level and begin a seamless transition to full-time college studies after high school graduation.
It was a boost for my self-confidence to know that I could complete college courses successfully. It eased the transition from High School to College. When I started college as a matriculated student, I knew I could complete the course work based on my early college experience. – Nancy, UMM Early College Student
