Open Scale

ASU Prep Digital students can earn digital certificates from ASU while in high school. These certificates include college credit and demonstrate proficiency in specific areas.

Students earn certificates by completing a series of ASU Open Scale courses. These online courses provide a low-risk way for students to test the college waters for free. You only have to pay if you complete the course with a passing grade and want to receive college credit.

Earning college credits while in high school can save students time and money when they get to college. The credits can also be transferred to most U.S. universities.

Please note, all projects and labs are completely online so no textbooks are required.
