High School

High school students can take advantage of many exciting programs at College of DuPage to jump start their success.

High School Courses for Credit

This summer, advance your high school career, enroll in that band or art class you love but just can't fit in your schedule, or master or make up a needed credit from the previous year. One- and two-semester courses in a variety of subjects are available at several locations.

We also offer online courses in selected subjects such as Algebra. Students will have directed lesson plans and access to a COD instructor during office hours. Mid-term and final exams will be administered on campus in Glen Ellyn. Students should check with their high school guidance counselor to assure credit will be granted for these courses.
