UW in the HS – College Credit for AP CS


We are proud to offer our students taking AP Computer Science the opportunity to earn 4 University of Washington credits for UW Computer Science 142 for 10th, 11th and 12th grade Students (10th graders added back this year, 2015). The cost of these credits are $370* ($325, plus a $45 UW registration fee) which must be submitted by mail or phone by Friday, October 30th, 2015. Registration instructions are located at: (Curtis Specific)

The UW Computer Science program has approved that our AP CS class meets the requirements of CS 142 and now allows this articulation; meaning students can graduate Curtis with a UW transcript with 4 credits! The necessary forms and fact sheet for this program will be sent home with all AP CS students (additional details below). This is a great opportunity to earn UW credits for a fraction of the cost while at Curtis High School, but it also means that registered students are making the commitment to put in the extra effort to succeed in AP CS, since the grade in this class will go on their permanent UW record.

UW in HS Fact sheets can be found on line at: . Here is the Curtis Specific UW in the HS registration details (it has the Curtis specific course numbers on it). For more details regarding the UW in the High School program visit the website:, and you can contact the program with any questions at or (206) 685-6404. And if there is any questions I can answer regarding our AP class, feel free to contact me, Mr. Hashagen, at or (253)566-5710 (after school please).

More Details about UW in HS:
Credit Transfer:
Cost: $370. Course Fee: $325, Registration Fee: $45 (Note: If students are registering for more than one course that starts in the same term, they only need to pay the registration fee once. For example, a student registering for two year-long classes would pay $320 + $320 +$44 = $684. However, if the student later registers for a second semester class, the registration fee will need to be paid again at that time.)
