JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -- The Missouri Senate has passed legislation that could allow high school students who go on to receive state-sponsored scholarships to be reimbursed for some student fees.
Under legislation sent to the House on Thursday, students participating in dual-credit high school courses can use some scholarship funds to pay off fees charged as a result of those classes.
Students in Missouri’s Bright Flight and A+ scholarship could take advantage of the program if they meet criteria developed by the Department of Higher Education.
Bright Flight scholarships are awarded based on ACT or SAT scores. The A+ program gives students attending a participating high school money to attend a community or technical college.
