Information for Parents & Students
Eastern Promise will provide increased access for high school students interested in earning college credits. Classes are delivered in the school by high school teachers, enabling students to earn more credits. Eastern Promise college credits also satisfy high school course requirements, similar to dual credit.

There is no tuition cost, but there may be minimal transcription fees (similar to the current dual credit fee of $10 per credit). Text book acquisition costs have not been been finalized yet.
Students must be 16 years or older to participate, the state requirement for enrollment in college courses. Limited courses will be available at several high schools in the 2012-2013 academic year, with more becoming available in 2013-2014.
