College Classes for High School Students

Northeastern Illinois University’s College of Arts and Sciences is offering a great opportunity for high school students to get an early college experience, supported

by scholarships! 


Experience college class rigor at NEIU this spring as a high school student.

Dual Enrollment Overview 

You’ll earn 3 credits on a NEIU transcript (and are widely

transferable to many other institutions). You’ll be taking a

real college course with NEIU students, supported by NEIU

advisors and staff to optimize your success; and you can get

a student ID giving you all the privileges of any other NEIU

student: access to the library, the gym, student services, and more! You’ll connect with other motivated high school students from around the city.

Tuition and Fees 

Dual Enrollment Program students receive a NEIU scholarship waiver to cover the cost of attendance for

one class (tuition and fees for a 3 credit hour class as

an Undergraduate Student-At-Large is $1,516).


Students are responsible for their own classroom fees/books/materials. They are not covered by the

NEIU scholarship waiver.
