Start College Now (Formerly Youth Options)

New Program: Start College Now

“Start College Now” will allow high school students the opportunity to take college courses at Wisconsin Technical Colleges. The process is very similar to Youth Options. 38.12 (14) will lay out all the aspects of the program. In addition, feel free to review and download the application.  Students looking to take courses in the fall semester must turn in the application by March 1, 2018. For spring semester courses the same application is used, however the due date is October 1, 2018.

Youth Options will no longer be an operational program as of June 30, 2018.  Due to the need for high school students to take college-level courses while in high school the new program has been developed.

Feel free to contact Ann Westrich with questions; 608-261-4588 or or feel free to contact the Career Prep Coordinator at your connected Technical College.
