Due to high school closures and changes in how UW courses are being taught, UWHS is reviewing course contingency plans with all high schools offering UW courses. For information on the status of UW courses they are enrolled in, students should contact their high school.

For Teachers & Schools

UW in the High School helps high school students get a jump start on their college career. Through UWHS, high school sophomores, juniors and seniors can take UW courses at their high school and earn high school and college credit at the same time. Courses are taught by the school’s own teachers, who are approved and trained by the UW department sponsoring the course.

Partnering with UWHS can:

  • Improve the college readiness of your students
  • Allow students to earn UW credit at reduced rates, without leaving the high school campus
  • Provide professional development for teachers, who’ll have opportunities to collaborate with UW faculty and other teachers in the program
  • Enhance the academic reputation of your school

In the 2018-2019 school year, more than 100 schools throughout Washington state participated in UWHS as partner schools. More than 200 teachers taught UW courses through UWHS, and more than 4,000 students enrolled for UW credit in these courses.
