About University in the High School (UHS)

Albany High School students can earn college credits at a significantly reduced cost or no cost through University in the High School (UHS). Students take a class or classes at Albany High and receive credit from a specific college or university.

Students taking these courses at Albany High have the option to take the college credit portion, but it is not required. Students not taking the course for college credit will still remain in the class at Albany High for high school credit. Students who are interested in dual enrollment courses should discuss this with their parents and school counselor. 

Students in grade 9 are not eligible for UHS credit.
