VERSAILLES, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky public high school juniors will have an opportunity to earn free high school and college credit at the same time starting this fall.

The Kentucky Community and Technical College System said in a news release that the program for juniors aligns with Gov. Matt Bevin’s new dual credit initiative primarily for high school seniors. That program provides the opportunity to take two college courses through the dual credit scholarship.

There’s no cost to students for either program unless they choose to take more classes than the scholarship covers.

The release said Bevin wants graduates to leave high school with at least nine postsecondary credit hours.

KCTCS is committing $600,000 to the scholarship program for juniors.
