University in the High School Program

The University in the High School Program (UHS), under the direction and sponsorship of the College of Arts and Sciences, is a partnership program between the University at Albany and participating secondary schools throughout New York State. The Program allows qualified students to earn college credit while still in high school. By entering college with previously earned credits, they can hasten their graduation from college or explore a wider range of academic areas during a regular college sequence.

The following coursework is currently available to program participants (see individual departments, schools, or programs for course descriptions). The "S/U" option is not available in UHS courses. Current course offerings are listed below. Course descriptions are listed in relevant department sections of this Undergraduate Bulletin. Other courses may be considered upon request.
