Registration Instructions and Details
Registration ProcessFollow the First Time Student or Returning Student section below as appropriate. You'll be able to register and pay at the same time per the registration steps listed below. If you have applied for and been accepted by your school as qualifying for the Free/Reduced Lunch program, please see important details about our tuition waiver (or Medford School District scholarship) as applicable.
Click here to view our ASC Instructions, Registration Details, and Policies summary.
Tuition is $50 per credit ($200 for a 4-credit course). Maximum 20 credits per term.
Course name, Course Reference Number (CRN), and course information is available from your high school instructor, the ASC website, and the online registration form under "Sections" tab. If you select a class that has a lab, you must also select that lab from the "Labs" tab.
We will register you after we receive your submitted registration form and full payment (or scholarship/free lunch confirmation).
Please note that there is NO retroactive registration. You may only register for a class within the term that it is offered. Once a registration term deadline has passed, SOU cannot retroactively register you for credit.
If you have a partial or full scholarship from your school or other organization, you will select "Scholarship" on the Payment tab and name that organization so we know whom to contact for payment. (Scholarship organizations pay at the full rate, not at the waiver rate.) For partial scholarships, once we confirm your scholarship, we will follow up with you to request payment for any remaining balance due.
Most ASC courses are offered in two 4-credit sections. This means you will register and pay for credit twice during the school year. When it is time to register for the second section of your credits, your instructor will provide you with the information. Please check with your high school instructor to find out more and adhere to the deadlines below to register at the correct time of year.

Policies and Data Privacy
Tax InformationSOU 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, then you must provide 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.
Demographic Data CollectionState 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.
Student PrivacyOnce 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-Degree Seeking SOU Students (including ordering transcripts, adding or dropping courses if necessary, and contacting us directly with any questions).
About the ProgramASC FAQ
The SOU Pre-College Youth Programs staff with cooperation from participating schools and instructors coordinate registrations, tuition payments, processing of submitted grades, course withdrawals/tuition refunds. Advanced Southern Credit (ASC) through Southern Oregon University Pre-College Programs offers students the opportunity to begin a university education while still in high school, without traveling to a university campus. Students take SOU approved classes offered at their high school and enroll through SOU Pre-College Programs at a reduced tuition rate. Students complete classes on site at their high school and earn an average of 4 college credits per class.
