The Advanced Credit Program (ACP) is a dual credit program, as defined by the Missouri Department of Higher Education. This program offers qualifying, high-caliber high school students in select schools the opportunity to earn college credits and become familiar with the college experience while still in a high school setting. College credits earned through the ACP are accepted at all of Missouri's public colleges and universities and many other institutions across the country. 

Vision Statement

The Advanced Credit Program (ACP) at the University of Missouri-St. Louis will be known as a premier provider of dual credit programming, creating opportunities for qualified high school students to make a seamless transition to higher education.  

Mission Statement 

The Advanced Credit Program (ACP) is a partnership linking the University of Missouri to high schools in the metropolitan St. Louis area to enable eligible high school students to take high-quality, lower-division college courses on their high school campus.
