Advanced College Credit Program

Help your students get a head start.

Exceptional high school students looking to get a head start and earn college credits while completing their high school requirements may be eligible for UB’s Advanced College Credit Program.

Qualified students can register for regular full-credit day or evening courses held throughout the academic year and over the winter or summer. Typically, students accepted into the program enroll in first-year (freshman) courses requiring a high level of preparation in high school coursework. Courses may be taken on campus or online, and credits are transferrable to both public and private colleges and universities. For a list of course offerings, visit the Office of the Registrar website.
