HELENA, Mont. (AP) - Gov. Steve Bullock has announced a pilot program to expand dual enrollment opportunities for high school students in Montana.

Bullock said Thursday the program will allow teachers of dual enrollment classes to receive college credit coupons. The coupons can be used toward classes for themselves at any Montana university system or tribal college. The credits can also be transferred to students, family members and friends.

Dual enrollment classes are in-person classes in which students earn both high school and college credit at half the price of tuition at a college or university.

The pilot project will go into effect in fall of 2014 and run through the spring of 2016. It will be funded using existing resources from the Office of the Commissioner of Higher Education.
