College in the High School

What is College in the High School?

College in the High School (CIHS) is a dual-credit program that allows students to earn high school credit and college credit simultaneously while staying in high school. CIHS courses are taught by Stadium instructors who are certified by the college that is awarding the credit. Students who have completed the college registration process will ea​rn a college transcript from the college. ​Students who register and pay for College in the High School courses will need to request transcripts from the respective college/university when transferring credits to another college/university.

Who can take a CIHS course?

CIHS courses are open to 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students who want the challenge of a college-level course. Students should have a strong work ethic and a growth mindset based on curiosity and thinking beyond the situation. Students should be strong writers and be able to work independently.

For University of Washington courses, it is recommended that students have earned a strong grade in their prior course.

For Central Washington University credit, students must take a placement test based on the Accuplacer/Compass exam.
