Juniors and Seniors may enroll in college courses if they meet admission requirements, not to exceed a full time college workload of 19 hours for fall and spring semesters. For purposes of calculating workload ½ high school units shall be equivalent to 3 semester credit hours of college work.
High School Juniors and Seniors who meet the eligibility requirements are entitled to receive tuition waivers for up to 9 hours per semester at most Oklahoma colleges and universities. These waivers do not include the cost of books, travel expenses, or student fees. Student Fees (not including books and travel expenses) for concurrent enrollment will be paid for by Wayne Public Schools at the discretion of administration. Students who fail a class during a semester will not be eligible to receive a fee waiver for the next semester.
