  • High School Transient Program

     
     

    High school students in the local Steubenville area can take college courses at Franciscan University of Steubenville while still in high school. Here's how it works...

    Eligibility

    • High school juniors and seniors living in the local Steubenville area who are 16 years of age by the last day of the drop/add period for the semester for which they are enrolling are eligible to apply for admission as a “transient” student.
    • Applicants must have a cumulative high school GPA of 2.4 (C+) or higher. A student’s ability to continue in this program may be suspended if his or her cumulative GPA at Franciscan University falls below 2.2.
    • The application should be signed by the student’s high school guidance counselor or principal.
    • A student receiving a D or lower in a FUS class will not be permitted to take any other course until they meet with the director of Admissions to determine a future course of action.

    Application

    • A transient application can be downloaded here and returned to the Admissions Office with the signature and title of the approving high school official.
    • An application form is required for each semester the student intends to enroll.

    Classes Information

    • Course selection is limited to 100 and 200 level courses as space is available.
    • High school transient students may take up to 6 credits in each semester (Fall, Spring, or Summer) for a maximum of 18 credits per year.
    • Post-secondary classes are available only until high school graduation or 36 total hours has been reached.

    Registering for classes

    • Registration for high school students will take place at the end of June for the fall semester and mid-December for the spring semester.
    • The registrar will put together a class schedule for each high school student based on the course(s) requested on the student's application and based on where seats are available in the desired class(es).
    • If the registrar needs additional information or has a question about a class chosen, the high school student will be contacted by phone for clarification.
    • A schedule will be mailed to the student once registration is complete.
    • Once enrolled by the registrar, the student may make changes to his or her schedule through MYFranciscan .
    • The student may change his/her schedule online as needed without further approval (provided that the student does not try to register for a 300 or 400 course or try to exceed the 6 credit limit or attempt to register for a closed class or course with prerequisites.)
    • Course changes may be made until the last day of the semester drop/add period.

    • Each student will need a Student ID card before his or her first semester of classes. The card can be obtained at the Registrar's window in the lower level of Starvaggi Hall.

Students with a High School ID are able to use the facilities in Finnegan Fieldhouse; however, high school students are not permitted to participate in Club or NCAA sports.
