Senior to Sophomore St. Cloud State campus visit

Senior to Sophomore (S2S)

St. Cloud State University partners with 40-plus high schools to allow eligible students to earn college credit in their high school classrooms.

Some students earn enough credits to begin their first year of college as a sophomore. We are an alternative to the on-campus Post-Secondary Enrollment Option Program.

We pair a highly trained high school teacher with a university faculty member who ensures the rigor and integrity of the course.

Our Senior to Sophomore students learn college-level skills in critical thinking, writing, research and course management that help the transition to college. They also:

  • earn college credits while meeting high school graduation requirements.
  • enroll in classes right on their high school campus and avoid competing for space in classes.
  • have more opportunity to select advanced courses.
  • have access to the university's academic advisors, library, email and internet.
  • may be able to graduate from college sooner. 

Senior to Sophomore earned NACEP Reaccreditation in 2020! See the press release.

Contact Maria Wright, Director of Concurrent Enrollment, for specific information or to find out how to participate.
