High school students get dual-enrollment discount
HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Montana colleges say they are making it cheaper and easier for high school students to take some college classes.
The Montana University System says the dual-enrollment program allows qualified students to take college level classes for credits that can apply toward both their high school diploma and a college degree.
Online courses are also available at the Montana Digital Academy.
Superintendent of Public Instruction Denise Juneau says every high school student should consider the opportunity. She says it makes college more affordable, while also offering a new challenge.
The Montana Board of Regents previously approved a plan to discount dual enrollment tuition as much as 50 percent. In some cases, tuition will be free to high school students.
