BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) – Western Kentucky University says it is reducing tuition rates for high school students taking college courses.
Beginning this fall, the dual credit classes at the university in Bowling Green will be reduced from $210 to $156 for three credit hours.
In addition, the university says a new scholarship initiative announced by Gov. Matt Bevin pays for up to two dual credit courses per academic year or nine total hours throughout high school.
The university partners with 79 high schools and home school programs throughout Kentucky to offer college credit courses for eligible high school students.
Applications for the scholarship are not required. Students must enroll through the university’s admissions department.
