  • 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...


    • 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.


    • 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.
