  • TF North/South Suburban College Step-Up Program

    Seniors have an opportunity to earn up to 12 college credits TUITION FREE or at a reduced tuition cost. District 215 has partnered with South Suburban College to offer this unique opportunity for our senior students. Seniors can potentially earn up to 12 college credits at a fraction of the cost you would pay your freshmen year in college.

 The student's first course at SSC will be tuition free. If the student chooses to take a second course in the same semester they will pay only 1/3 of the tuition, SSC will discount the tuition by 1/3 and District 215 will pay 1/3 of the tuition.

If the student earns an A or B in one of the courses they can enroll in the next semester for one course tuition free and a second course at the reduced tuition rate. A senior student at District 215 can graduate with potentially 12 college credits already completed or more if they start the summer after their junior year.

*Student must test into a 100 level course to qualify for the tuition waivers.

*Student fees and books are to be paid for by the student/parent.
