High School University Program
The High School University Program allows qualified students to begin their college education before graduation from high school. Students have the opportunity to experience life at a four-year university on a part-time basis while taking approved college courses convenient to their high school schedule during the traditional academic year.
Please note: Due to impaction at CSUSB, the High School University Program will not be offered for winter and spring 2013.
This program is by no means an alternative to high school. Courses taken at Cal State San Bernardino by high school students are not to be used to make up any college admission deficiencies. This is strictly a tool for high school level juniors and seniors who have proven academically mature enough to succeed at the university level.
- Junior or senior standing at your high school
- A 3.0 (or higher) grade point average in college preparatory coursework beginning in the 10th grade
- Recommendation from your high school counselor or teacher (Official High School University Program Recommendation Form)
- Adequate high school preparation in prerequisite courses (where prerequisites apply)
Approved Courses for Students in HSUP
Students may register for courses numbered 100-299 (lower division, transferable) provided any prerequisites have been met. We suggest general education courses.
English and Math Courses
Students who would like to register for English or math must provide qualifying SAT-I or ACT test scores. For English, a student must score a minimum of 500 on the Verbal/Critical Reading portion of the SAT-I or a 22 on the English portion of the ACT.. For math, a student must score a minimum of 550 on the SAT-I or a 23 on the ACT.
Students in the High School University Program pay a reduced registration fee of $8 per quarter. Activity fees apply to some courses. There will be an additional $102 fee for students who require a quarterly parking permit. All fees are due within the first week of class. Fees may be subject to change.

Cal State San Bernardino’s Campus Holiday Schedule
Your university course schedule may not match your high school’s holiday schedule. If your high school is closed on a day that the university is not, you will be expected to attend your university class. See the current class schedule and your course syllabus for any holidays or view our calendar.
The High School University Program is the beginning of your college career … Grades count
Refer to the current class schedule for important dates. Campus policy prohibits students from dropping courses after the census date without documented reasons and administrative approval.
Students must maintain good academic standing in order to continue enrollment in the program. Participation in the High School University Program does not automatically qualify a student to regular CSU admission.
Grades may be viewed online at MyCoyote. Official transcripts may be obtained from the Office of Records, Registration and Evaluations by completing a request form and submitting applicable fees.
