College credit in high school

FAIRFIELD — Kennebec Valley Community College is encouraging juniors and seniors at area high schools to take advantage of a tuition-waiver program that can allow them to earn college credits while still in high school at very affordable rates.

Students with a minimum cumulative grade point average at the B level or above and permission from their parent/guardian and guidance counselor are welcome to enroll in up to six credits of transferable general education courses at KVCC in each fall and spring semester.

Students are responsible for fees of $60.60 for each three-credit course and textbook costs. Tuition is waived. Students usually earn high school credit for these courses as well.

Seats are limited so interested students are encouraged to apply early. Some online courses are also available. For more information or an enrollment form, contact Mark Harmon at 453-5127 or [email protected] The program is also open to home-schooled students.
