SUU Early College Online Program

(ECO)

Cedar High School is glad to announce the new ECO program from the Southern Utah University, which will be offered during the summer months, for high school students. 

What is the ECO Program?

The ECO (Early College Online) program is an excellent opportunity for students to get ahead in their college credit plans during the summer to help students who want to free up their schedule during their regular school year and still keep earning their college credits.
