LIU High School Scholars Program

The LIU High School Scholars Program offers high school students a unique opportunity to accelerate their college education. Through a wide range of dual-credit courses—applicable toward both the high school diploma and a bachelor’s degree—LIU High School Scholars earn college credits while studying in their high school classrooms.

Explore advanced topics—marketing, human anatomy, criminal justice, film, and more—in a supportive, hands-on learning environment designed to prepare you for college-level academic standards.

Courses are significantly discounted from on-campus tuition, enabling you to earn credits and get ahead of your college career before even graduating from high school. Courses may be applied to undergraduate degree programs at LIU Post (or transferred to other institutions, as determined by the receiving institution), so LIU Scholars may take fewer courses while at college and graduate up to one year early, resulting in a significant savings of tuition and time.
