The Start College Now program enables high school students to enroll in occupational/technical courses and/or general education courses and earn high school and college credit at the same time. The program is open to eligible 11th and 12th grade students who are currently enrolled in a Wisconsin public high school. Students must be in good academic standing for the school board to approve Start College Now, as well as other requirements.
Students apply directly to their high school for approval to the Start College Now program. The school district will pay 100% of the tuition costs and non-consumable course materials. Students who are not successful in Start College Now courses may need to reimburse school districts for the course and book fees.
