Eligible students may also take courses for which there are no endorsements, such as computer science, foreign language, history, political science, or psychology, as long as they have taken all sections of the MME, ACTPLAN, ACT or PSAT. State endorsement is not required in any specific area for this participation.

3.    Students must be enrolled in both the school district and postsecondary institution

during the local school district’s regular academic year and must be enrolled in at

least one high school class.

4.    The district must not offer the college courses. An exception to this could occur if

the local board of education determines that a scheduling conflict exists, which is

beyond the student’s control.

5.    The college courses cannot be a hobby, craft, or recreation course, or in the subject

areas of physical education, theology, divinity, or religious education.

     6.   School districts are required to pay the lesser of:

a. The actual charge for tuition, mandatory course fees, materials fees and

    registration fees; or

b. that state portion of the students’ foundation allowance, adjusted to the

                       proportion of the school year they attend the postsecondary institution.
