Key Features

  • Creates a seamless education system for students enrolled in grades 11 and 12 to have additional options to continue or complete their education, earn concurrent high school and college credits, and gain early entry into post-secondary education.
  • Promotes and supports existing accelerated college credit programs, and supports the development of new programs that are unique to a community’s secondary and post-secondary relationships and resources.
    • Any program, agreement or plan in effect (e.g., dual credit, tech-prep, or accelerated college credit program) that provides access for public high school students to a post-secondary course is not affected by the Expanded Options Program and may be continued.
  • Provides public funding to the eligible post-secondary institutions for education services to eligible students to offset the cost of tuition, fees, textbooks, equipment and materials for students who participate in the Expanded Options Program.
  • For a high school with an enrollment of 1,000 students, each school year no more than 330 quarter credit hours may be awarded to eligible students at the high school under the Expanded Options Program.
  • A school district may choose to exceed that cap. If a district chooses not to exceed the cap and has more eligible students than allowed, the school district shall give priority for participation to at-risk students.
  • An “at-risk” student is identified as one who qualifies for a free or reduced lunch program.
