High School students can take a class for under $300!

Western Illinois University is offering high school seniors an opportunity to complete Western classes prior to graduation from high school. Participating students will receive an automatic scholarship and can benefit from Western's unique Cost Guarantee program that locks in tuition, fee, room, and meal plan rates for four years if the student decides to attend WIU after high school.

High school seniors who choose to enroll in Western courses will receive an automatic scholarship that covers two-thirds of their per credit hour tuition cost. For example, students enrolled in a three-credit hour course would normally expect to pay $854.10 in tuition costs. With the automatic scholarship, students would pay $284.70 and receive a scholarship to cover the remaining $569.40 in tuition costs.

High school students who are enrolled at Western are not charged student fees but do need to purchase their textbook for the class.
*Students who choose to take an online course will be subject to the $50 per credit hour online fee.

Students will need to complete an online application and will need to send a letter of support from their guidance counselor or principal, an official high school transcript and ACT/SAT scores for review.
