Earn College Credit in High School

Consortium courses are taught by qualified high school faculty under the supervision of Seattle University faculty. Students who successfully complete the course(s) are eligible to earn college credit. The college credit is transferable to most colleges and universities.

The five Seattle-area Catholic high schools that make up the Consortium include: 

Courses offered include:

  • HUMT 1500M Composition: Language and Thought (5 credits)
