Regent University announced Tuesday high school students can work toward their college degree from home by taking online classes starting June 22.

Each credit hour is $75 and students must be at least 16 years old to enroll. Apply here.

Regent University’s Early College is a fantastic way for high schoolers to get a head start on college,” said Heidi Cece, associate vice president for enrollment management, in a prepared statement. “By offering these classes for only $75 per credit hour, we’re committed to helping high schoolers earn college credits that are high-quality and affordable.”

Students can take courses from multiple areas of study, including business, biology, English, math and psychology, according to the news release.
