High School Program: CU Succeed

CU Succeed offers high school students dual credit enrollment to gain college and high school credit concurrently.

About CU Succeed

CU Succeed is a great way for current high school students to get a jump start on their college education. The program is a unique partnership between the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS) and select high schools.

Courses are taught in the high school during the regular school day by University-qualified high school teachers who hold an Honorarium Faculty Appointment in their appropriate discipline department at UCCS.

These courses are regular university courses that appear in the University catalogue, not high school courses for which students receive university credit. This provides students with the opportunity to save time and money in completing a college degree.
