Why you should take a class at RWU through the All Course Network?

No Cost to You

At University College, high school students can enroll in ACN courses that range from liberal arts, justice studies, community development, EMT Basic, to core classes like math and writing. Along with tuition, ACN pays for fees, books, and any other course materials you may need.

Begin Building a College Transcript

You can take up to two courses per school semester (one in the summer).  You will have the potential to graduate high school with more than a semester's worth of college credits if you take two courses each semester. This has the potential to save you time and money after high school when you begin your college journey at RWU or another college.

Wrap-Around Support & Resources

All resources available to all RWU students, such as library and campus access, are available for ACN students. We offer wrap around support at UC and work closely with ACN students to ensure your success. We offer tutoring, academic accommodations, and a new student orientation for all ACN students to get acclimated to being a college student.  We offer workshops throughout the semester that support academic success.
