Scholarship Opportunity for Area High School Students This Summer

Scholarship Opportunity for Area High School Students This Summer

April 6, 2016 |

This summer East Central College will offer current high school sophomores and juniors in the college service region a unique opportunity to earn college credit at a reduced tuition rate.

Current sophomores (class of 2018) and juniors (class of 2017) can enroll as Summer Scholars and take ECC summer session classes at a reduced tuition rate of just $60 per credit hour.  To be eligible for this institutional scholarship, students must be attending a public or private high school in the ECC service region.  Interested high school students need to apply for admission to ECC.  They may also need to provide ACT scores and transcripts of any previous college credit or be required to complete a placement exam before registering for classes.

Students will attend classes in ECC classrooms and labs at locations in Union and Rolla or online. Summer classes begin Monday, June 6.

“We instituted the Summer Scholars program in 2014 and we’re excited to provide this opportunity to high school students who’ve shown an interest in college coursework,” said Nathaniel Mitchell, ECC’s director of admissions. “The program also highlights our dual credit program and how beneficial it is for students to begin their college career while they are still in high school.”

The class offerings include anthropology, art, biology, business, chemistry, communications, computer information systems, education, English, environmental science, history, math, music, philosophy, psychology, and sociology.

Those interested in the program can apply online or contact the Student Service Center at 636-584-6588 or
