Advance College Project
The Advance College Project is an academic collaboration between Indiana University and
high schools in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and their students and teachers to provide a seamless
transition for students from high school to higher education by offering dual credit/
concurrent enrollment classes.
Extent of Program
The ACP program is administered through IU
Bloomington, and is supported at the regional
campuses of IU Northwest, IU Kokomo, IU East,
IU South Bend and IU Southeast.
Demographics 2006
Qualifiers for Program
A participating school drafts an agreement with IU
to provide teachers who have MA’s or unique
training in a subject area. IU faculty liaisons train
and monitor teachers to deliver college courses to
high school students who meet IU academic
admission standards.
ACP is a dual credit program
where students take classes
taught by their high school
teachers for high school and
college credit concurrently,
at their high school, during
the regular school day.
