The University of Arkansas at Little Rock is teaming up with the Bryant School District to[more] offer qualifying Bryant High School students the opportunity to earn high school and college credits by taking specified classes.
"Bryant has about 1,000 students who apply and about 600 qualify each year," said Lynn Harrison.
The classes will begin in the Fall of 2013 and will costs $50 to $100 per class. UALR will cover approximately $700 in tuition and fees for a three credit course which is covered by a scholarship through the University.
“The program is an exceptional value for students aspiring to work ahead and earn college credits while still in high school,” Harrison said.
According to Bryantschools.org, If a student enrolls in six concurrent classes while in high school, UALR will contribute a scholarship of $4,200 while the student pays only $300.
Bryant students that were interested in the classes met on March 28 to begin the application process.
If students were unable to make that date, Harrison will be at the Bryant High School library from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., on Thursday, April 4.
