Dual enrollment grows in Montana, but reduced cost still insurmountable for some

The state’s Dual Credit Incentive Program gives dual enrollment teachers a “coupon.” For every credit hour taught, the MUS covers the tuition for that same number of credits for the teacher to further his or her education. The state wants to expand online course availability. Cech said the state is a finalist for a J.P. Morgan Chase Foundation grant that if funded would provide $2 million to help Montana grow Big Sky Pathways and dual credit opportunities, particularly in Career and Technical Education. “Specifically regarding tuition, we’re always looking for opportunities,” Williams said. “We’re always looking at other states. Education budgets are always lean; we’re all basically in the same boat. It’s who is innovating best and fastest, and what’s working.”
