SCC Reduces Tuition Rate for Early College Academy and Dual Enrollment
Beginning in January 2020, area high school students will pay a new, simple flat rate for courses taken through the Early College Academy as well as dual enrollment courses administered by St. Charles Community College.
“The new $50 per credit hour rate will make college credit courses more affordable and accessible to area students,” said Kathy Brockgreitens Gober, assistant vice president for college transitions and support systems.
On average, high school juniors and seniors will now pay nearly 41 percent less than the in-district tuition rate for courses at SCC.
“We currently have four high school partnerships with the SCC Early College Academy. Students participating in the Academy have the ability to graduate with a high school diploma and an Associate of Arts degree at the same time,” said Brockgreitens Gober.
The St. Charles Community College Dual Credit and Dual Enrollment Programs allow students to have challenging learning experiences that enhance and extend their high school curriculum, according to Brockgreitens Gober. These programs not only increase college-readiness for students but often make the transition from high school to college easier.
Under the new rate, students will still be responsible for related course fees and other class-related materials. The Board of Trustees unanimously approved the new initiative at its October 7 meeting.
