2018-19 Advanced Southern Credit Online Enrollment

Registering for ASC Classes is a Two-Step Process: Registration & Online Payment

Fall 2019 Advanced Southern Credit is Coming Soon! 

  1. Registration form. When completing this form, please include valid email addresses that are checked often as well as phone numbers where we can reach you in case there is a problem with your enrollment or payment.

    • Desktop/laptop version

    • Mobile version - it may be necessary to turn cell phone to horizontal view to be able to enter the course information section 

  2. Pay online with Visa or Mastercard.


Tuition and Waiver Eligibility

The ASC courses are taught at the individual high schools by high school instructors. Because the approved ASC high school instructor is paid by the high school, not the university, students receive a significant tuition reduction.The tuition for an ASC course is currently $45 per credit hour. Considering that a 2019-20 state funded four-credit undergraduate course's tuition can be over $1,000, ASC offers substantial savings to the student. Maximum of 18 credits per term.

Students who are on Free/Reduced Price Meal ("Free/Reduced Lunch") status may register online for one class (including lab if applicable) for $45, which is equivalent to the cost of one credit. SOU will contact your school to confirm that status before we can register you. See Instructions for further details. Exception to Waiver Program: Registrations for Medford School District students who qualify for free/reduced meals will be paid for through Medford School District scholarships.

Demographic Data Collection 

State law requires that SOU provide students the OPTIONAL opportunity to disclose gender identity and sexual orientation information. We are also collecting data on first generation status, ethnicity, and race for institutional research and statistical purposes. All demographic questions have "prefer not to answer" as an option, and responses we receive from you will be kept completely confidential and subject to FERPA laws.

Important Note about Student Privacy

Once a student registers for credit at Southern Oregon University through the ASC Program, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) provides that student with certain rights with respect to the privacy of their records, regardless of the age of the student. SOU employees are bound to honor those rights and cannot provide unauthorized persons (including a parent) access to the student’s record such as grades, transcripts, number of credits, classes taken, charges billed, or payments made, unless the student completes and submits a FERPA Release Form to us. Therefore, to keep paperwork and parental frustration to a minimum, we request that all enrolled students take full ownership of their status as non-admitted SOU students, including ordering transcripts, adding or dropping courses if necessary, and contacting us directly with any questions.

Tax Information

SOU does not require the disclosure of the student's Social Security Number (SSN) on the Registration Form. If you wish to receive a 1098-T as outlined in the IRS Code section 6050S, we must have the student's SSN for reporting qualified tuition. If you haven't previously submitted a W-9S form to us, student should complete Part I only of the W-9S tax form by entering the student's name and SSN. This form only needs to be filled out once in the time a student is taking ASC courses. Print and return the W-9S form to SOU Business Services attn: Tina Cripe, 1250 Siskiyou Blvd, Ashland OR 97520. Please note that SOU and/or SOU Youth Programs cannot give tax advice. Please seek the assistance of your tax professional.
