The Youth Options and Course Options programs allow all public high school juniors and seniors who meet certain requirements to take postsecondary courses at a Wisconsin institution of higher education or technical college. An institution of higher education (IHE) includes UW System institutions, tribally controlled colleges, and private, nonprofit institutions.

The programs open the door to greater learning opportunities for students who are considering a technical career, wishing to begin college early, or wanting to prepare to enter the workforce immediately after high school graduation. Download these brochures to learn more.
