Under Senate Bill 155 (also known as the Career Technical Education Initiative) Kansas high school juniors can qualify for free college tuition for approved technical courses offered at Kansas technical schools and community colleges.
In addition to assisting students, SB155 also provides several funding incentives to local school districts. FSCC has partnered with several area high schools to provide more qualifying vocation programs. For a complete list of SB155 classes* offered at Fort Scott Community College, go to our Online Schedule and select the Senate Bill eligible classes only under the drop down menu for course type.
* Senate Bill 155 eligible classes are subject to change at any time without prior notice.
- Eligible SB155 student – To be eligible for SB155 credits, a student must be a Kansas resident and graduation date is after the start of an SB155 course.
- Additional Fees not covered by SB155 - SB155 credit does not apply to additional lab fees, allied health fees, or manicuring kit fees on qualifying courses. These charges will still be owed.
- Credits for SB155 eligible courses – credits will be posted to student accounts by October 15th and March 15th for courses that start at the beginning of each semester. Late start courses will be following certification in the course.
