Advanced Start Academic Program (ASAP)

The Master's University Advanced Start Academic Program (ASAP) enables juniors and seniors in high school to take accredited, college-level Bible and General Education (GE) courses that can meet both high school graduation requirements and be counted toward an undergraduate degree at The Master's University.

Students enrolling in ASAP will be allowed to register for select undergraduate classes taught on-campus at The Master’s University. Therefore, the program is best suited for students living within reasonable commuting distance of the campus. ASAP students are expected to meet the same academic requirements as other undergrad students in each class. Students may choose to enroll in individual classes or join a cohort of dual enrollment students taking the same classes together (see schedule below). Cohort students participate in campus chapels and may also purchase lunch in the Mustang Grill.
