College in the High School

High school juniors and seniors in the Capital Region and throughout New York state can register to take college-level courses through the College in the High School program.

These courses give students an opportunity to experience a college-level course while still in high school and receive college credit.

Credits can be applied to Hudson Valley Community College programs or transferred to most four-year colleges and universities. Depending on the school, students may be able to transfer up to 15 credits or more.
