University in the High School at UAlbany
The University in the High School Program at the University at Albany was established in 1983 within the former College of Humanities and Fine Arts, now part of the College of Arts and Sciences.
The UHS Program was originally designed as an innovative way to provide students in Capital Region high schools with the opportunity to earn University at Albany credit for advanced study in foreign languages. The Program has since expanded to include course offerings in over 30 subject areas.
UHS Program courses help students during their final year(s) of high school develop the skills and experience necessary for academic success in higher education. Students who complete UHS courses gain the potential to enroll in higher-level college courses or to complete a four-year degree in a shorter amount of time.
