Jumpstart your college education – virtually!
MSU Denver’s College Credit in High School (CCHS) Virtual Network allows you to earn college credit through online classes, no matter where you are.
When you participate in a Virtual Network class, you will be earning college credit along with other high school students from across the state. All classes are taught by MSU Denver faculty and are completely online and asynchronous.
CCHS is proud to offer a reduced tuition rate for high school students. The current tuition rate for Virtual Network classes is $156.40 per credit. Most courses are 3 credits. In comparison to MSU Denver tuition, this is an average savings of $125 per credit.
Virtual Network courses are a state-funded College Opportunity Fund (COF) eligible concurrent enrollment program at MSU Denver.
