Earn College Credits in High School
College Credits for High School Students
High school students can jump start their college career by earning college credits while still in high school.
Several options to earn credit are available (see below):
- Advance Placement – High school students can take Advanced Placement (AP) courses which prepare them to attempt the Advanced Placement Exam. Successful completion of Advanced Placement exams can lead to the awarding of college credit. Click here for more information on how Advanced Placement credits are accepted at MPTC: AP at MPTC
- Cooperative Academic Partnership Program (CAAP) – Students can earn college credit through the CAAP program by completing college coursework available through several Wisconsin colleges. MPTC accepts a variety of CAAP courses as transfer credit. To receive Moraine Park credit, students need to provide an official transcript from their CAAP college/university.
- Dual Credit – The Dual Credit program allows students to earn college credit right in their high school through courses taught using MPTC curriculum.
- Start College Now – MPTC’s Start College Now program allows high school students to take Moraine Park courses (either on campus or online) and earn both college and high school credit for them at little or no cost.
