BVSD works with local colleges and universities to support students in getting a head start on earning college credits and gaining industry certifications.

Concurrent and dual enrollment refer to courses where students simultaneously earn college credits while completing high school requirements. Benefits of concurrent/dual enrollment include:

  • Experiencing a gradual transition to college coursework while in a supportive high school environment
  • Saving on college tuition costs
  • Getting ahead on earning a college degree
  • Earning college credit while completing high school graduation requirements

Our college partners are:

The ASCENT and TREP Programs pay tuition, books and fees at MSU or FRCC for the first 1-2 years after students complete high school.
