EARLY COLLEGE EXPERIENCE PROGRAM
Northwest Catholic offers ECE courses in Biology, English, and Statistics. These courses offer students the opportunity to obtain college credit from the University of Saint Joseph while still in high school. A nominal fee of $50 per credit is charged. Students must be approved to enroll in this course by the Department Chairperson, School Counselor, and Principal. A grade of “C” in the course is required to earn University of Saint Joseph credit.
UNIVERSITY OF ST. JOSEPH CHALLENGE PROGRAM
Certain 100 and 200 level courses are available for Juniors, and Seniors to take for college credit through the University of St. Joseph. Spots for USJ courses are limited, and there is an application process for acceptance into the USJ Challenge Program. Tuition is free for the first class, but students are responsible for the cost of books. Students must be ages 16-18. Students are only allowed to take one USJ Challenge Program course at a time. Please see the school counseling office for more details.
