Mid-Plains Community College is offering a $70 per credit hour discount for dual credit classes for the 2022-23 academic year. The savings will bring the cost of tuition and fees to $46 per credit hour.

“MPCC is providing this discount to students to allow greater access to college credit while in high school,” said Paul Knopick, area director of Early Entry and Program Development. “This discount will provide more opportunities for our area students to gain knowledge of a future degree or career path, help prepare them for college rigor, cut overall costs of college and help contribute to a college-going culture. I would encourage all area high school students to reach out to their counselors or MPCC to take the next steps on their collegiate journey.”

Dual credit classes are typically taught in the high schools by qualified instructors. They provide a head start on a college education by counting toward both high school and college credits simultaneously.
