Students take college courses on campus with WKU in Glasgow students throughout the morning. They return to their high school each afternoon to attend high school classes. 

 

WHO SHOULD APPLY?

High school sophomores who plan to attend college and want to get a jumpstart on their college progress. Qualified students apply through their high school guidance office during the winter of their 10th grade year. 100 students from the region will be accepted into the program annually.
