Who is eligible for Early Entry Classes?

Juniors and Seniors in participating local high schools are eligible to apply for the program. Students who apply and are accepted must work closely with their high school counselors to make sure graduation requirements are being met and that the SOU classes do not conflict with their high school schedule. Home Schooled students will need to meet with our SOU High School Coordinator, Stephanie Butler. Please call her at 541-552-6916 to make an appointment. Southern Oregon University Division of Continuing Education staff provide support in registration, course selection and academic counseling for eligible students.

How does the program work?

Interested students apply to their high school counselor expressing interest, detailing career goals and why they believe they would be successful in this program. Counselors review attendance and academic records and interview students. Upon acceptance to the program, students meet with their counselors to design an individual program that fulfills high school graduation requirements and meets students' needs for university course work.
