6. EARNING COLLEGE CREDITS WHILE STILL IN HIGH SCHOOL

6a. College Now Courses at South

College Now!


Intro to College Now: College Now allows currently-enrolled area high-school students to earn Lane Community College credits for approved courses taken at their high-school campuses, taught by specifically qualified high school teachers.


*Do keep in mind that LCC credits earned through College Now count towards the Oregon Promise Grant's credit maximum.

2020-21 SEHS College Now Course List

This list of courses changes from year to year. For next school year, many of these classes may be offered, but none are guaranteed.

Registering for LCC credit for College Now courses

Receiving LCC credit is not automatic. Students will need to register for the course with LCC and earn a B- or higher. (Kathy Ruggles, SEHS' College Now liaison, can assist with registration.)
