The program enables students in grades 7-12 can earn college and high school credits at the same time by taking college courses at no charge from community colleges or universities. Students who obtain college credit at no cost have a better chance of completing college and graduating with less debt, research has shown. Under the program, a student can earn up to 30 credits in a school year and 120 credits overall. In most cases, students will travel to the institution for classes or take online courses. In some cases, courses will be taught in the school district. The cost of tuition, books and fees is covered at public institutions. There may be some costs for private colleges. School districts may have agreements with local colleges, but students can take courses from any college.
