The Senior to Sophomore Program offers eligible students an opportunity to begin earning college credits while fulfilling high school graduation requirements and staying on their high school campus.
In addition to earning credits, these rigorous courses offer students help in learning important “transition skills”. Students begin to learn college level skills in critical thinking, writing, research, course management, etc. Such skills help students make a successful transition to college.
Benefits for Students
All Senior to Sophomore classes are encouraged to visit campus at least once a semester. To help make these campus visits possible, the program reimburses schools for bus transportation and the cost of a substitute teacher. While on campus, students participate in a variety of activities, such as:
Online Student Handbook
The online Student Handbook describes the S2S program and St. Cloud State University’s academic policies, procedures and the many campus resources that are available to participants in the Senior to Sophomore program. More information is available in the Student Handbook: What Students and Parents Need To Know section.
HuskyNet access and library bar codes
All Senior to Sophomore students receive a library bar code and a HuskyNet ID that allows them to borrow books and access the SCSU Learning Resource Center’s electronic collections. The HuskyNet connection allows students to use the university library from home, school or campus.
Annual Summer Workshop
Each year we hold a special workshop for all those involved in the Senior to Sophomore program. High school teachers, SCSU faculty, administrators, school curriculum directors, etc, gather to plan and talk about how to strengthen the program.
