Will the college credits I earn in high school save me and my parents money?

Yes!  If you and your family are not paying or not paying much, for the college credits you earn in high school, chances are you will save money.  Check with the colleges/ universities that you are looking to attend to learn how the credit earned fits into the school’s degree or certificate program.

If you are not sure which college or university you’ll attend (or if you’ll go to college at all), go ahead and find out how the credit counts at a nearby college or university anyway. Each college or university has a policy for accepting credits.  How the college credits you earn in high school counts toward a degree or certificate may be different at each institution.  Here is a useful website to help you: http://www.c3oregon.org
