Through the UW in the High School (UWHS) program, high school students can complete University of Washington courses — and earn UW credit — in their own classrooms with their own teachers. Students and teachers use UW curriculum, activities, texts, tests, and grading scales. Students earn a final grade over time; a grade does not depend on one exam. Students receive recognition for their UW work at most public institutions and many private ones.

The Department of Global Health partners with teachers at high schools to offer Introduction to Global Health: Disparities, Determinants, Policies and Outcomes (Global Health 101).
