Advanced Southern Credit
ASC success is evidenced by a continuing commitment to the program by the university and the high schools, by requests for expansion into a variety of disciplines, by the academic success of students involved in ASC courses, and by a high level of satisfaction expressed by students, faculty and administrators.

About the Program
The ASC courses are taught at the individual high schools by high school instructors. Since these courses are "sponsored" by the participating high school, SOU is able to reduce the normal tuition fee by a considerable amount. The tuition for an ASC course is currently $41 per credit hour. Considering that a 2013-14 state funded four-credit undergraduate course's tuition can be over $800, ASC offers substantial savings to the student.
The SOU Division of Continuing Education Pre-College staff with cooperation from participating schools and instructors will administer registrations, tuition payments, processing of submitted grades, course withdrawals/tuition refunds and calendar issues. Any questions related to Advanced Southern Credit Issues should be directed to the High School to College Transition Programs staff. Call 552-6452.
