    • SCHOLARSHIPS - A limited number of scholarships are available for the fall 2020 semester to help fund motivated students who may not have the financial resources to participate in the Dual Enrollment Program. Scholarship Applications should be emailed to Mrs. Freese by 9/30/20. Students who are eligible for free or reduced lunch are eligible to apply for the scholarship.

     

    • TRANSFERABILITY – Since these courses would be traditional college freshman selections, the transferability factor is extremely high. Students should contact the registrar’s office of colleges they plan to make application to in order to confirm that the transfer credits will be accepted.  Students should also be aware that some colleges may not give credit to courses that are used to fulfill high school graduation requirements.  In addition, typically a grade of “C” (70%) or higher is required to transfer credits.  It is the student’s responsibility to verify the transfer credit policy at the college that they wish to attend to find out how dual enrollment credits will be accepted.     

     

     

    • Please Note: Once a student has registered for a course, should he/she decide to withdraw from the course, he/she must see Mrs. Freese immediately to complete a withdrawal form. Please be advised student may be responsible for the full tuition for that course depending upon the date that RACC receives notice of the intended withdrawal.
