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 partner schools or programs.
  • Qualify for free or reduced lunches at your high school.
  • 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 separate application process for this scholarship. When parents provide consent for their student to take a dual credit course, they will be given the opportunity to tell us that their student qualifies for free or reduced lunches and give permission for us to verify this information with the school.
