On-campus Precollege Enrollment – Nondegree Program

About OPEN Program

Print Registration Guide

The OPEN (On-campus Precollege Enrollment—Nondegree) Program is offered by IU Bloomington, through the Division of Extended Programs, as a service to qualified high school students. It gives them special access to regularly scheduled IU courses for college credit on a space-available basis. The program is intended to meet the needs of highly motivated and high achieving precollege students. This nonresidential commuter program is available to eligible students each term of the regular academic year as well as during the Second Summer Session.

Applicants must be concurrently enrolled in high school classes (exception summer) pursuing a high school diploma and living with a parent(s) or legal guardian(s) within commuting distance of the IUB campus. Students (juniors or seniors) must be recommended for the program by their guidance counselor or principal. Usually, the recommendation is based on the reason for taking the class and on superior performance in high school as evidenced by rank in class and GPA. In some instances, credit earned from IU courses can also be used to fulfill high school requirements. This option, if desired, should be discussed and arranged with the student’s high school counselor.
