For Students

College in High School is a concurrent enrollment partnership, which means a registered student earns academic credit from his or her high school and the University of Pittsburgh at the same time. By taking CHS classes, you can get a jump on your future education and earn college credits. You also gain confidence by experiencing college-level course work. And, CHS courses cost a fraction of regular in-state tuition.

Academic research and state data suggest that high school students in concurrent enrollment programs receive other college-related benefits.

These students:

  • are more likely to meet college-readiness benchmarks
  • achieve a lower likelihood of college placement into remedial English or math
  • attain higher four- and six-year college completion rates
  • accomplish a shorter average time to bachelor’s degree completion for those completing in six years or less
