Niagara University Senior Term Enrichment Program (NUSTEP)

Welcome to Niagara University's concurrent enrollment program, NUSTEP. Niagara University offers many entry level (general education)  college courses in local high schools for college credit. This program allows qualified juniors and seniors the opportunity to challenge themselves to the rigors of college level work while remaining on their high school campus - all at a discounted cost.

Students are recommended by instructors or school counselors for the program; then, a university representative visits the school to explain the program further. The instructors use the course descriptions, outlines, syllabi and exams constructed by the academic department at the university. Courses cost $65 per credit hour. Therefore, a three-credit course costs $195, a substantial savings over the regular fee. Students on free or reduced lunch programs (verified by high school administration) are able to receive a tuition waiver that will cover the cost of the course; there is a $20 non-refundable registration fee that all students are required to pay regardless of any type of waiver that they may receive.

NUSTEP is accredited by  The National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships.
