Free and Reduced Lunch Scholarship

Get a head start on your education, free of charge 

High school students who receive free and reduced lunches are eligible for a dual credit scholarship. Qualifying students can take up to six credit hours of dual credit per semester at no charge to them.  Starting in the spring semester of 2020, this scholarship is available to students at all of our partnering schools.


To qualify, you must: 

  • Be enrolled in one of the qualifying schools or programs. 
  • Qualify for free or reduced lunches. 
  • Have at least a 3.0 high school Grade Point Average. 
  • Meet course prerequisites, if applicable, to enroll in a class.

Getting Started

There is no additional application for this scholarship. Parents or guardians will communicate with the Dual Credit office that their student receives free or reduced lunches within the normal registration process.
