HPS students may qualify for enrollment in undergraduate courses in college level accredited institutions even as they are completing required and elective coursework leading to a Howell High School diploma. This opportunity falls within Michigan’s Public Act 160, the Post-secondary Enrollment Options Act. Under this Act, Howell Public Schools are required to pay tuition and fees for high school students in grades 11 and 12 who attend Michigan public or private, degree-granting institutions under certain conditions. Dual Enrollment allows a student to enroll in post-secondary for high school credit or post-secondary credit or BOTH. Please refer to the Course Selection Book to review eligibility requirements.
