The High School University Program (HSUP) allows high school sophomores through seniors to take college-level course work at the University of Utah. The program is designed for motivated students looking for an academic enhancement to their high school curriculum and want to get a head start on their college career. HSUP students may participate in any 1000 or 2000 level course, as long as they meet any prerequisite requirements.

Be sure to check out our frequently asked questions (below) to learn more about the High School University Program. If you have additional questions about the program, please contact the program coordinator, at hsup@utah.edu.

We are no longer requiring the submission of the Counselor Recommendation Letter!





How Much does tuition cost for HSUP Students?

HSUP students receive a discounted tuition rate of $5, for each credit hour in which they enroll in. Please refer to the 2020-21 HSUP tuition rate schedule below, which is an estimate only and may change due to specific class fees. It is important to note that HSUP students are not subject to mandatory fees, which means they do not have access to the Student Life Center, campus recreation (e.g., intramural sports, sports clubs, Outdoor Adventure Center), public transit (e.g., UTA Trax, Bus and Frontrunner), university sponsored student activities, athletic events (i.e., student tickets) and some library privileges. Tuition is paid online and is due approximately one week after classes start. HSUP students who qualify for the University of Utah staff tuition reduction must complete the application process in order for the tuition discount to be applied to their HSUP tuition.
