STLCC to Conduct A+ Program College Access Series

September 08, 2016

St. Louis Community College will host a free college access series to update and inform local high school partners about the Missouri A+ program and its benefits.

The A+ program enables qualified students to attend one of the state’s public community colleges by covering the costs of tuition for two years.

Representatives from STLCC and other Missouri education departments will discuss how the A+ scholarship program can help students pay for the first two years of a bachelor’s degree or the cost of a career credential.

The first session, “Becoming an A+ Designated High School,” will be offered as follows:

  • Thursday, Sept. 29, 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., at St. Louis Community College’s Corporate College, 3221 McKelvey Road in Bridgeton
  • Thursday, February 2, 2017 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., STLCC-Meramec, 11333 Big Bend Road in Kirkwood

Legislation was recently passed that expands provisions of the Missouri A+ scholarship program to private schools throughout the state. The bill now allows public and private high schools to apply to the State Board of Education to become certified as an A+ School. Representatives from the Coordinating Board of Higher Education, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and area A+ designated high schools will present interested schools with the necessary tools and information to become an A+ high school.

The second workshop, “A+ 101 and Update Session,” will be offered on Thursday, Feb. 2, from 8-10:30 a.m. at STLCC-Meramec, 11333 Big Bend Road in Kirkwood.

High schools currently participating in the A+ program will receive the most up-to-date information about the A+ Scholarship program from representatives from the Coordinating Board of High Education. STLCC representatives will be available to discuss the enrollment process as it relates to students using the A+ Scholarship at STLCC.
