Accelerating Students through Concurrent Enrollment (ASCENT) is a program that allows students to participate in college courses after their 12th-grade year. This program covers the cost of tuition for the Fall and Spring semesters (in the year after high school completion) and associated fees.  Students are responsible for books, materials, transportation, and living expenses.  Students should talk to their home high school counselor if they are interested in the ASCENT program.
