Credit Programs for High School Students


College Now - Take college classes at your high school

You can get college credit for some courses at the same time you're earning high school credit. This means, when you're ready to go to college after graduation, you could already have several credits under your belt toward an associate or four-year degree. You'll save money, too.

You can do this if you're a:

  • Sophomore
  • Junior
  • Senior
  • 9th grader with a gifted Individual Educational Plan (IEP)


Quick Step - Take college classes with a JCCC instructor

JCCC's Quick Step program is ideal for committed and motivated high school students.

Quick Step, or on-campus concurrent enrollment, includes classes taught by a JCCC instructor at one of our outreach locations or online. Local school districts determine whether you may also earn high school credit for on-campus concurrent enrollment courses.

You can do this if you're a:

  • Sophomore
  • Junior
  • Senior
  • 7th, 8th or 9th grader with a gifted Individual Educational Plan (IEP)

SB 155 - Take classes for free

Kansas Senate Bill 155 allows JCCC to waive the cost of tuition for high school students who meet residency requirements. This only applies to certain career technical courses. Eligible courses are marked in the class search. So, before you enroll, check the class search for course and status changes.
