DUAL CREDIT SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION
Seniors are eligible to apply for a dual credit scholarship. This scholarship can cover up to two dual credit classes at no cost to the student. Beginning 2017-2018, the dual credit scholarship is not automatic. The MCHS Dual Credit Coordinator will send a list of students taking dual credit courses to KHEAA. KHEAA will contact students via email to obtain college and semester preferences for the dual credit scholarship. KHEAA will then notify seniors of their award or denial status. Scholarships will be disbursed by KHEAA directly to the college/univeristy. MCHS has no role in deciding who does or does not receive the dual credit scholarship. BEST ADVICE: check your email often and respond early to emails from KHEAA concerning dual credit scholarship funds.
