Kansas High School Juniors and Seniors
What Senate Bill 155 Does For Kansas Juniors and Seniors in HS!
In an effort to jump start the workforce, Kansas' new Career and Technical Education Act (SB 155) allows Highland Community College to enroll high school Juniors and Seniors in Technical Education programs and selected courses without charging tuition. That's right HCC is able to provide FREE TUITION for technical programs and some classes. Beyond that, HCC has chosen to WAIVE FEES for all technical programs and SB 155 courses! In addition, book rental for technical programs offered at the Technical Center and the Western Center is FREE! Students taking SB 155 courses in face to face, IDL, online, or hybrid formats will be charged $16 per credit hour for book rental.
On this page, we will keep you updated on courses and programs that are available each semester at Highland. If you play your cards right, it's possible to graduate from high school with not only a diploma, but a technical certification as well! Enrollment and transfer information may be found below.
Do my classes Transfer to Other Colleges?
The Kansas Board of Regents has established a Transfer and Articulation guide listing courses that seamlessly transfer from community colleges to any of the state supported colleges and universities governed by the board of regents. Click here to review those course guides.
HCC has also articulated transfer with area colleges and universities. To see HCC's transfer guide, please click here.
