Universal Learner Courses benefit high school students in a number of ways.


Promote college readiness among the student body.


Increase access to advanced college-level material, especially in the STEM fields.


Provide affordable college credit options.

Flexible facilitation models

Choose from one of three facilitation models for Universal Learner Courses.


Individual model

School does not provide space or teacher. Student signs up and takes the course outside of school, on his or her own time and schedule.

Supervised model

Teachers provide support or office hours, but students complete the coursework largely on their own time and schedule. This is a great option for schools with limited teacher resources.

Facilitated model

Teacher facilitates course through scheduled class time (during the COVID-19 pandemic, this may be through the use of tools like Zoom) and guides students through material.

Pathways into academic colleges at ASU

Pathways provide endless opportunities for students to study what they love.
