Advanced Credit Program

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