Precollege Course Options for MI students  

     If you don’t live in Michigan, please use the Concordia Wisconsin webpage.

Honors-level high school students have these options to earn college credit while still in high school. 
Students may take 1 or 2 courses each term.  

  • On-campus course at CUAA: Students who can commute to campus can choose from a variety of 100 or 200 level courses. Some on-campus courses will require a textbook purchase.

List of on-campus courses

  • Online course: Students can choose from 15 online courses. With flexible online classes, students can complete coursework during the school day or at home. Semester courses are not self-paced but follow a schedule with weekly assignment deadlines. There is no textbook cost for online classes. 
Spring 2020 full online courses:  ECON 200, POLS 201. 
    Late applications for other online courses may be accepted.

Application Deadlines

  • Spring term 2020 runs Jan 27 - May 17, 2020.
  • For online classes, apply by December 1. Courses may fill so early application is encouraged.
  • Requests for ON-CAMPUS CUAA classes are accepted Nov 1 - Dec 20, 2019.

Tuition for MI students

  • State of MI Funding (PSEO)  Students attending a MI public or private high school pay $0 for a dual credit course through state of MI funding. Summer term and REL courses do not qualify for state funding. Concordia completes the state forms for payment. The student pays tuition if the course is failed or dropped.
  • Homeschool students in MI qualify for the reduced Concordia Promise tuition rate of $50 per credit. That's only $150 for a typical 3-credit class. The Promise rate can be used for a maximum of 36 credits.
  • Audit: Dual credit students who wish to audit an on-campus class (no grade, no credit) will pay an audit fee of $75 per credit to participate in the class. Online courses cannot be audited.
