Current High School Students
William Carey University offers a cooperative program in area high schools whereby specific courses may be offered for college credit in addition to high school credit. Approval of courses for college credit is based on criteria including teacher qualifications, curriculum, and instructional methods. Admission as a dual credit student is only available to qualifying students at cooperating high schools.
High school students who desire to take college courses for credit may participate in the Step-Ahead program. Step-Ahead is designed as a dual enrollment program for students who are enrolled in honor classes for which college credit equivalency has been established. The program is offered on the William Carey University Hattiesburg campus.
