Smart Scholars Early College Program at ITC

The Smart Scholars Early College Program is a partnership between institutions of higher education and public school districts to create Early College High Schools.  Students are provided with the opportunity and preparation to accelerate the completion of their high school studies while simultaneously earning transferable college credits.  For more information please visit our ITC Smart Scholars page.

For the 2018-2019 school year, ITC Smart Scholars earned a total of 298 college credit hours on-campus at Onondaga Community College.  This number increases to well over 300 credit hours when combined with those earned through dual-enrollment courses offered at ITC in partnership with SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry and Syracuse University through Project Advance (SUPA).
