Your guaranteed admission to an elite university.
What is ACCP?
The ACCP (Advanced College Credit Program) partners with Marquette University to implement the Explorer-ACCP Program. Explorer-ACCP offers Marquette University courses to advanced high school students and gap-year college students around the globe, allowing them to earn up to one year of college credit in their home country before carrying the credits over to their future university. Students will be able to apply the credits they have earned toward a degree at any university that they wish. Alternatively, IPERC will provide them with full application support in applying to any ACCP partner university around the world. Students who meet the admission requirements at that ACCP partner university will receive direct entry and, in most cases, will not even need to submit an English proficiency score. The Explorer-ACCP program fully prepares students to enter college and gives them a head start on their education.
Enhanced University Application
Students who complete the ACCP program will increase their chances of admission to an elite university by demonstrating that they have the ability to succeed in an academically rigorous college program while still in high school.
Streamlined Application Process
Students are automatically accepted to ACCP partner universities as sophomores upon successful completion of the program often without the need for standardized testing.
ACCP students earn up to 34 credit hours of college credit while still in high school, allowing them to begin their university studies well ahead of their peers.
ACCP courses are offered year-round and at multiple times a day, allowing students to pursue university studies on a schedule that works for them.
All students enrolled in ACCP courses will have an official college ID and access to university-provided resources.
Compared to AP courses and other dual credit programs like IB, ACCP has a wide selection of more than 100 general education courses covering 26 different subjects.
Partnerships with Elite Universities
ACCP partner universities are top-ranked universities that welcome international students from around the world.
Curriculums can vary from school to school, making it difficult for universities to accurately evaluate international students. ACCP curriculum standards and guidelines are set by our partner universities and are the same program-wide, ensuring students are evaluated on more than just their GPA.
All ACCP instructors are university approved, have obtained a master's degree or higher, have several years of teaching experience, and are US-based.
Interactive Teaching Environment
All ACCP courses are taught in real-time and are student-centered, so there is no hiding in an ACCP course. During each course, students will work with their peers through in-class discussions, group projects, presentations, and inquiry-based activities.
Improved Academic English Skills
All ACCP students must complete courses in English for Academic Purposes, in which they will produce academic research papers and communicate their findings through presentations.
