Early College Access Program (ECAP) for High School Students

Begin Your College Career Early

Get a head start on your college degree while saving time and money. Through Husson’s Early College Access Program (ECAP), high school juniors and seniors can enroll in college courses to earn credits that can count toward a degree program. ECAP is offered to domestic students only, excluding California residents. 

Save money. Courses are tuition-free for ECAP students.

Save time. By applying your credits to your program of choice when you attend college, you can potentially graduate earlier.

With the safety of all students in mind, ECAP offerings for the summer and fall 2020 semesters will be online courses only.

Program Application Requirements

ECAP is open to current high school juniors or seniors. Students must have a cumulative GPA of at least 80 or equivalent. 

Once you’ve been accepted into ECAP, you may enroll in up to 2 courses per semester for a maximum total of 21 credits over 2 years. Enrollment in courses is dependent on space availability. Some courses may have prerequisites that you’ll be required to meet before enrolling. 

To Apply

Complete the ECAP Program application. Immunization records must be received prior to the start of classes.

ECAP students will be responsible for:

Purchasing the textbook(s) used in each course.
Complying with Husson University academic and student life policies.
Transportation to and from class.

ECAP students need to have either an A or B grade in a 15-week online or face-to-face course in order to take a 7-week course. The university reserves the right to cancel any course due to low enrollment. At the completion of each course, Husson University will create an official transcript noting the completed enrollment. Request a transcript.
