U of O opportunities for high school students

APPLY NOW TO TAKE UO COURSES FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

A special UO program allows high school students to take four-credit courses for $60. The courses meet on furlough days, holidays, and other days when the 4J high schools are not in session. During the upcoming term, which runs from early January through late April, high school students may take two courses through this special program: Advanced Topics in Chemistry 1 (taught by Marina Guenza and Andrew Marcus), and Modern U.S. History (taught by Michael Dreiling and Tom Lininger). The instructors are volunteers, but they are tenured UO faculty. If applications exceed the available slots in each course, a lottery will determine enrollment. Half the slots in each course are reserved for kids who want to take the course on a pass/no pass basis. For more information, contact Tom Lininger at lininger@uoregon.edu. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE APPLICATION DEADLINE IS FRIDAY, DECEMBER 7.

The application process is:
