High School Visitor Requirements

High School Visitors are students currently enrolled in high school who want to take college courses.

The University of Louisville offers qualified high school students the opportunity to earn college credit by attending classes on campus at the University. These students are called High School Visitors.  Benefits of the program are to:

•       Develop a college transcript while in high school

•       Experience college curriculum and instructional methods

•       Shorten the amount of time required to complete a college degree

•       Save money by paying less per credit hour than a regular U of L college student.
