FAIRBANKS (AP) -- Forty-two high school students from rural Alaska are getting a jump on college at an academic boot camp at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

The six-week Rural Alaska Honors Institute begins May 27. It is designed to improve access to higher education and offers a mix of eight to nine credits of college courses to help make students feel comfortable with living and working on a college campus.

The program, sponsored by UAF's Alaska Native Studies department, is in its 18th year.

The courses offer full university credit, giving students a head start on their college education.
