Special High School On Campus Program
For the same price as NUSTEP ($25 registration fee and $75 per credit hour) high school students who are recommended by their guidance counselor or instructors can apply to take up to two college courses per semester at Niagara University where they would sit alongside college students. Students who are interested in this program must submit the Special High School Program Application to the NUSTEP office, indicating what courses they would like to sign up for (click here for course offerings and availability). High school students may be approved to take 100 or 200 level courses based on prior academic work and availability of seating in the courses.
