WFIS is working with a core group of private schools to change the law and allow students to receive free college credits when enrolling in college-in-the-high-school courses.
Many students enrolled in dual credit courses cannot afford to pay for the college credits. Exposure to high-level coursework builds academic strength, but the ability to earn college credit for taking these classes needs to be equitable.
Washington is invested in increasing student persistence rates in post-secondary education. It wants to encourage entrance to colleges and universities and increase students’ success rates. Dual-credit programs have proven to be successful. Including private school students makes sense for the State’s goals for its students and the future workforce.
