Barton Community College is reducing online course fees this spring for Kansas high school students from $155 per credit hour to $75. That’s a savings of more than 50 percent per credit hour. Eligible students include Kansas high school sophomores and seniors.
Early College Opportunities director Karly Little said the savings will begin with the fourth session courses, which begin on March 20 and continue for future online sessions. High school students may be able to take the courses as double credits, but she said students should check with their high school counselor to see if the class would rely on their high school transcript and how it might impact their schedules. of the lessons.
“I’m so excited to see students take advantage of this $75 per credit hour opportunity,” she said. “We hope it will help students make great progress in their college or career plans starting with the March 20 session or any subsequent session. Each session is a new opportunity!”
Undertold students will receive a reduction in tuition costs through a Barton Scholarship. In addition to the credit hourly rate scholarship, some classes use low-cost (under $50) or free textbooks, helping students in these classes save even more money. A state-approved list of vocational technical education (CTE) courses is still offered free to high school students through a state program called Excel at CTE.
“Students can take one-on-one lessons or work toward a bachelor’s or associate’s certificate,” she said. “They can even mix and match Excel without classes in CTE, general education, and other technical courses. Mixing and matching fees helps reduce a student’s overall cost.
There is a wide range of courses available. Students can access online courses 24 hours a day, seven days a week. All sessions are open for registration from now until the day before class starts.
