"Early/Middle College School" means a stand-alone public high school, a school within a school, a Public School Academy (PSA) or a Shared Educational Entity (SEE) designed to allow a pupil to earn a high school diploma and either an associate's degree, the Michigan Early/Middle College Association (MEMCA) technical certification or up to 60 transferable college credits at the same time.

'Early/Middle College Program' is a five-year high school program designed to allow a pupil to earn a high school diploma and substantial college credit through an additional fifth year of study. A formal agreement with each postsecondary partner is required.

Early/Middle College High Schools can begin as early as 9th or 10th grade. Students attend for five years and follow a specific, five-year program of instruction.
