What is Weber State University (WSU) Early College?

Early College is an opportunity to receive required credits for high school graduation, while also earning credits towards a post-secondary educational goal. Taking advantage of this opportunity may allow a student to earn an Associate Degree in General Studies while still in high school. It may also make them eligible for post-high school scholarship opportunities. Review our Admissions page for more information on what is required in order to be admitted.

How does it work?

Under the Weber State University Early College model, students take college classes at a WSU campus, from WSU professors and instructors. As in a traditional student-university relationship, students are required to be admitted to the university, and then have to register for courses.

How much does it cost?

Early College students from NUAMES High School students have two scholarships available to help cover tuition and students fees. Students who qualify for both scholarships are always responsible to pay for all course, lab, and exam fees by the tuition deadline each semester. There is also a one-time Weber State University application fee of $30. Students never have to pay that fee again - ever. Books and supplies are the student's responsibility. Review our Scholarship policy for more information on what is required in order to earn a scholarship.

Course Content

Early College students attend the same courses as standard WSU students. If you have questions or concerns about the content of a course, please review the assigned courses textbook, the course description, and consider contacting the department or instructor for more information.
