Wisconsin’s Early College Credit Program (ECCP) is available to Wisconsin public and private high school juniors and seniors for fall, spring, and summer terms. Under ECCP, the cost of tuition for approved courses is shared among the school district or private school, the state, and in some cases the students. ECCP eligibility rules, deadlines, and procedural requirements must be met.

Qualified high school juniors and seniors taking ECCP classes at UW–Madison are admitted as University Special students. They are permitted to take up to two online, blended, or in-person courses per term.

If a qualified high school junior or senior does not meet the ECCP requirements, they may apply under the High School Special student program.
