Indiana - By Degrees / Getting a Leg Up for College
March 15, 2011
More and more high school students are earning college credit while still in high school. Apart from the AP (Advanced Placement) route, these pilot projects offer "early college" transition programs with a number of Indiana's universities and Ivy Tech for students who may not have been considered "college material." These dual credit programs have the potential to save students time, save their families thousands of dollars - while increasing college access and success rate for at-risk students statewide. They are also part of workforce development.
