    Eighty-five students will receive a 30-hour General Education Core Certificate, which means they have met all requirements for general education courses at all state universities in Indiana. Another 36 students earned between 15 and 45 credits. In total this year’s EC seniors earned 6,926 college credit hours, which is a savings of approximately $1,009,000 in college tuition.

    The Early College program is open to all CGHS students. Students are selected for the program based on their reading level, grades, and recommendations. The program admits approximately 120 students per year. Students take all of their core classes with the EC faculty and other EC students in a small learning community. This structure increases collaboration between faculty and leads to increased accountability and attention to students.
