ACP began in 1982 with six Indiana high schools and just over 250 students. Today, ACP continues to cultivate expansive and equitable college education opportunities for high school students across four states with 900 certified ACP instructors teaching IU courses to 26,000 students in over 200 schools.
Indiana University courses taught through Advance College Project (ACP) provide both high school and college credit, opening a gateway for students to fulfill high school graduation requirements while simultaneously kick-starting their college careers.
IU dual credit courses are taught during the regular school day by certified high school instructors who hold adjunct lecturer status through IU. ACP will build students’ official IU transcripts, and credits earned are accepted and transferable to many public and private colleges and universities around the country.
ACP is accredited by the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships which IU helped found in 1999.
