UW College in the High School Programs

The UW in the High School (UWHS) program gives groups of qualified high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to take five-credit University of Washington courses for credit in their own school with their own teacher. UWHS courses use the same UW curriculum, activities, text, tests and grading scale used in courses taught on the UW campus. Students who have completed a UWHS course say they are better prepared for college-level work in the areas of writing, mathematics, and earth science and world languages. UWHS courses can help improve students’ study habits as well as make them more adept independent learners – skills necessary for success in college courses.
