Early Entry

Valley City State University’s Early Entry program allows you to take courses in high school that will count for college credit. Unlike on-campus students, you will only be charged for tuition, fees, and books. That’s a great value for quality education from one of the region’s top colleges.

Guidelines For Admission

You must have a 3.0 cumulative GPA to be admitted.

If you are applying online, use ERE as the admit type. This means you will be taking courses for college credit only.

Next, submit application and supplemental materials to VCSU.

Application Materials

Once you’ve met the criteria, it’s time to submit your application to our Early Entry program. Your complete application will include:

  • Application for admission
  • A non-refundable fee of $35
  • Early Entry Registration Form
  • Official High School transcript showing progress toward completion of the College Preparatory Course Requirements
