Richland College Provides Dual-Credit Program
High school students in the Decatur area have a chance to experience college early. The Richland Community College transfer program allows juniors and seniors to take courses at the school.
Students in the program receive both college and high school credit for the classes they take.
Students from any school in Richland's district can participate. The program helps ensure students will get a head start on their college education.
"Almost 100 percent of students who have at least one college-level course on a community college campus before they graduate from high school are going to be ensured that they are going to continue their further education and get their college credentials," Richland President Gayle Saunders said.
Any student is eligible to participate in the program if they get approval from their high school.
