Getting Started

Step by Step


Get started with WSU Early College for NUAMES High School and be on your way to earning college credit while still in high school!


Step 1: Attend a WSU Early College Information Session for NUAMES High School

The WSU Early College Information Sessions are held in the fall each year. These meeting are for current NUAMES High School students and their parents or guardian. Each student and at least one parent or guardian MUST attend one of these hour-long sessions to be eligible for admissions into the WSU Early College program.

Meetings are held in Layton at the Weber State University - Davis Campus and in Ogden at the Weber State University - Ogden Campus.

The next WSU Early College Information Sessions for NUAMES High School students will be held in the fall of 2019 for those interested in starting the Early College program Spring 2020 or Fall 2020.

You will need to RSVP in order to attend one of the WSU Early College Information Sessions for NUAMES High School students.


Step 2: Apply for Admissions as an Early College student

Check out the admissions page for a step-by-step guide on how to apply to be a student in the WSU Early College program. At the end of your admissions process, you'll be asked to pay a $30 admissions fee. This is a one-time fee and you'll never have to pay it again. Ever!

This application is required even if you have already applied as a WSU Concurrent Enrollment student. If you have signed up for WSU Concurrent Enrollment courses, you have already paid this fee and will not need to pay it again.


Step 3: Meet with your NUAMES High School Counselor

You must meet with your NUAMES High School counselor to determine if you are eligible to participate in the WSU Early College Program.  Make sure to bring a copy of your official ACT score sheet with your to this meeting.  This will allow your high school counselor to submit your Early College Counselor Contract.  This contract is used to connect with your high school counselor in determining if you are eligible to participate in the Early College program. The counselor contract needs to be submitted before you will be invited to complete the WSU Early College Pre-Advising Modules Canvas course. 

Please note: Student's will receive an email inviting them to the canvas course once the high school counselor contract has been received by the WSU Early College office. If you don't receive this email within 2-3 business days check with your high school counselor to verify the contract has been submitted.


                                     Step 4: Complete the required WSU Early College Pre-Advising Modules

An email detailing how to access this module in canvas will be sent to your WSU email once you have completed the steps listed above. This module will need to
be completed before you can proceed to the next step. 

**At least one parent or legal guardian is required to complete the module with you.**


Step 5: Meet with a WSU Early College Advisor

After completing the above steps, you will need to set up your required hour-long WSU Early College New Student (REC) appointment with your WSU Early College Advisor before you can register.

**At least one parent or legal guardian is required to attend this first appointment with you.**

 


Step 6: Complete WSU New Student Orientation

After you have been admitted as an Early College student, you will need to complete the required WSU New Student Orientation.  All new Wildcats are required to complete New Student Orientation. You will begin your orientation process online, learning important information like how to register for classes, pay for tuition, and what resources are available to you on campus. Orientation also includes an In-Person Experience right here on campus, so be sure to complete the online modules to sign up! An email will be sent to your WSU student email with more details on this requirement. You can also visit the Orientation website at: weber.edu/orientation.


Note: This is not the same event as the WSU Early College Information Session that you have previously attended. This is another step that is required of all students prior to their first semester at Weber State.
