Why should I take college credit?
Taking college credit is optional, but it is recommended. For high school students interested in science as a profession, participation in Wild Studies is a positive step toward building your resume early in your educational and professional career. Later in college, when you begin applying for competitive internships, having this experience coupled with a credit from a major university will put you ahead of others with less experience. An additional $200 now may prove to be a rewarding investment a few years down the road. For teachers, taking graduate credit may allow you to meet professional objectives and goals set by your district to increase your placement on the pay scale or help you to meet credit requirements for an advanced degree.
