Why Take College Classes While in High School?

ADVANTAGES OF TAKING ADVANCED STANDING COURSES WHILE IN HIGH SCHOOL:

  • At large universities it is often difficult to get enrolled in prerequisite classes because they are in such high demand. 
  • By enrolling in the Advanced Standing courses at your high school, you will get personal instruction from your high school teacher with a small instructor/student ratio. As a result, your chances of success are far greater.    
  • You will be considered an official Newman University Jet while attending high school!
  • You will receive a Newman ID card which allows you into all on-campus events such as NCAA Division II athletics games, theatre productions, fine art galleries and much more!
  • Additional academic assistance is available at no charge through our peer tutoring program. E-coaching for writing is available as well.
  • The Dugan Library is also available to you. You will have access to library resources as well as study rooms. The new Advanced Standing lib.guide is also a great academic resource for upcoming projects/papers. 
  • Plus, Advanced Standing students who enroll at Newman after high school will receive their money back in the form of a one-time credit toward their first semester bill at Newman! Receive your one-time credit in the total amount of money you have previously invested in Advanced Standing courses prior to high school graduation.
