Advanced Southern Credit (ASC)
Advanced Southern Credit (ASC) is offered by Southern Oregon University at several high schools in Jackson and Josephine Counties. Like AP courses, these courses are college-level work taught at the high schools. Students who pay a registration fee to SOU and earn an A or B in the courses receive credit at SOU. The fee is considerably less than the student would pay to enroll at the university. Often, the same high school courses can be used for either AP or ASC credit, and sometimes “AP” is used as a generic term instead of a specific reference.
The SOU Early Entry Program allows Jackson County students to access SOU courses on a space-available basis. If college students do not fill up the seats in a regular SOU campus course, high school students aged 16 and over may enroll in the course at a reduced tuition rate. These courses earn college credit and may also count toward high school graduation with prior approval from the high school.
