Early College

The College of Southern Idaho (CSI) collaborates with Idaho high schools to provide CSI courses within high school classrooms. The curriculum is taught by high school teachers approved by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU)*.

Additionally, CSI offers students the ability to attend classes on campus or online. 

Both options enable students to earn high school and college credit in select courses. More than 100 Idaho high schools participate in CSI's Early College program.
