Carl Sandburg College has expanded its Dual Credit Scholarship to include classes offered during the 2018 summer session, giving high school students a great opportunity to get a jump-start on college at a price that can’t be beat.

The scholarship, available to high school students who have yet to graduate, covers 50 percent of tuition for the first six credit hours enrolled. The scholarship is automatically applied when a student registers for classes, so there’s no paperwork or forms that need to be filled out. The scholarship is applicable to transfer degree classes as well as courses that are part of Sandburg’s career and technical programs.

“Our summer classes at Sandburg are a great way to get a head start on earning your degree — and doing so at a low cost,” Sandburg Dean of Student Success Misty Lyon said. “Taking a dual credit class at Sandburg will cost less than a similar course at an in-state college or university. Plus, many of our classes can be taken online, so students can still have plenty of time to enjoy their summer break while studying at a pace they prefer.”

Dual credit students receive the same on-campus benefits as other Sandburg students such as free tutoring (in-person as well as online), Sandburg Library access and free admission to campus events. The Dual Credit Experimental Pell program at Sandburg also continues to be available to qualified students.

Summer classes at Sandburg are filling up quickly and begin June 11. For more information or to sign up, contact the Sandburg Welcome Center at 309.345.3500 or
