  • Pre-college students are entitled to choose up to three courses among all regular KU ISC courses. You may follow the link to find the list of all courses: Click to move. However, some courses designed for junior and senior students may be challenging for Pre-college students. Therefore, we recommend that Pre-college students choose basic-level of Major courses or general studies courses.

Please note that it is not guaranteed that credits earned at KU ISC are transferable to students’ future home institutions. The academic authorities of the home institutions will assess credit transferability of a particular course based on their policies.
