Students can earn early college credit from Eastern Oregon University through dual credit in their high school or directly from EOU faculty. Active students* only need to submit one application & a financial responsibility form. If your high school has an agreement with EOU to pay for student courses you may not need to complete a financial responsibility form. 

*Active student – A student is considered active if attendance is not interrupted for more than three consecutive terms (not including summer).

Dual Credit Courses Available at Participating Schools

All of the dual credit courses available to students count towards actual degrees at EOU! Earning both high school and college credit at the same time gets you closer to earning your degree and starting your career. Start your college degree while in high school and explore fields including psychology, business, computer science, teaching, pre-nursing, and so many more.

Mountaineer Advantage Programs

Mountaineer Advantage Programs, or MAPs, help students, parents and counselors navigate toward a major at EOU. Students progress by directly taking EOU coursework on campus, online or through a local community college. MAPs start at the student’s high school with dual credit coursework and then transition to online/on campus options from the major checksheet. The list of each major’s 100 and 200 level courses is located at the bottom of each MAP so you can start checking off courses right away. The goal is to make sure students know where they are headed in their education.

Cost of classes:

Earn up to 45 credits toward your degree and save up to $12,500 on the first year of college tuition!

  • On Campus – $75 per credit
  • Online – $75 per credit
  • High School Dual Credit taken from your high school – $40 a credit

Over multiple courses you can save thousands of dollars and earn enough credits to enter as a sophomore. Check with your high school to see if some or all of your early college credits can be paid for. If you are interested in taking courses on campus or online directly from EOU faculty, you can email to get information about academic support at Eastern.
