Indiana high school students who may be considering a career in education and want to get an early start on college credit can now take some courses at the University of Evansville.

UE has launched an Early Start Education Program it says will enable high school juniors and seniors to earn college credit before graduating from high school.

The university says students in the Early Start Education Program will be able to complete up to five required courses for an education degree at UE.

Classes include education, psychology, and the health sciences. 

"It will reduce heavy class loads, allow students in the program to potentially complete their education degree at UE in just three and a half years, and enable study abroad," said Sharon Gieselman, chair of UE's School of Education.

Beginning in the Spring of 2020, classes will be available at $125 per credit hour. All classes are offered online, making it easier for high school students to get an early start on their college education.

"This is a smart investment for students and their families," said Gieselman.

The university says students who decide not to pursue an education degree after enrolling at UE can choose another major while still retaining the credits.
