Dual Credit Scholarship
What is Dual Credit?
As a dual credit student, the child is enrolled in a course which allows him/her to earn high school AND college credit at the same time.
Dual Credit Scholarship Program
By gaining college credits prior to graduating from high school, a student increases the likelihood that he/she will be able to complete a college degree in a shorter period of time!
A June 2016 executive order by Gov. Matt Bevin created the Kentucky Dual Credit Scholarship Program, allowing students enrolled in a dual credit course through a participating Kentucky college or university to take advantage of a reduced tuition rate. Ask your student’s guidance counselor or early college representative if you have questions about whether a dual credit program is eligible for the dual credit scholarship.
Based on a three-hour course, the cost of completing the dual credit through the scholarship program is more than $300 less that taking the regular nondual credit course at the regular tuition rate.
