West Texas A&M University (WTAMU) and school districts from across the region have chosen to offer high school students dual credit opportunities through the Pre-University Program (PUP). The purpose of of PUP is to provide excellent campus and online-based higher education experiences for high school students who intend to pursue a university level degree. The best part is that upon approval of an academic adviser, the courses taken for dual credit only cost $150!
Currently participating school districts:
If your district is interested in participating in PUP, simply complete the PUP Agreement and submit it to the Office of Admissions.
High school juniors or seniors are eligible to participate if they have met minimum PUP admission requirements at WTAMU. The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) is a requirement by the Texas State Legislature. Students must have met these requirements in the areas they plan to take classes. More information regarding TSI is available here, or you can call Advising Services at WTAMU (806-651-5300).
Minimum PUP Admission Requirements
Students enrolled in the Pre-University Program:
High School designees should verify that a student who participates in a college curriculum would not be disqualified from a desired University Interscholastic League (UIL) competition.
*Please Note: Texas Senate Bill 31 limits all Dual Credit classes to an institutions core and foreign language classes. Classes outside of WTAMU approved core and foreign language are not eligible for PUP and the $150/class rate. See SB 31
