The State School Audit Act PA 148, under Section 216, requires local school districts to use funds allocated by the Act to pay the tuition and fees of a high school junior or senior attending a public or private degree-granting post-secondary institution when certain conditions are met. Interested students should contact their high school principal or counselor for further information.

High school students may be permitted to enroll as guests while still enrolled in high school, with the written consent of their principal or the principal’s designee. Such students must submit a regular application for admission along with a high school transcript.

High school guest admission must be renewed each semester. High school guests desiring to attain regular student status at the College after completing high school must submit a re-admit application for regular degree status.
