What is the A+ Program?

The A+ Program provides for curriculum development in high schools, including courses that allow students to apply what they learn through tutoring and job shadowing experiences.  High school students are encouraged to have good grades, high attendance and engage in civically responsible behavior to prepare them for college.  Possibly the most important part of the A+ Program is the financial incentive available to students for continuing their education after high school.  During college, the A+ program encourages good grades and successful completion of a college degree, while incurring minimal to no debt. The A+ program is a wonderful program for our Missouri students!


Your Tuition is Covered

The A+ program will pay your tuition (maximum of $158.00 per credit hour) to any Missouri public community college, career, or technical school as long as you enroll full-time within 48 months after graduation from high school.


A+ and Classes

A+ allows students to take coursework while having their tuition covered.  A 2.5 GPA must be maintained each semester and students must be seeking a degree while enrolled full-time.  Please note that any courses taken that are given “pass/fail” grades will not count toward a student’s GPA.  Any remaining letter-grade classes must result in a 2.5 GPA to remain eligible.  The A+ Eligibility Worksheet provides additional information that students will find helpful.
