The College Step-Up Program is an opportunity for the students of District 215 to get a jump start on earning college credits while still in high school. District 215 has partnered with South Suburban College to offer this unique opportunity for our senior students.

Seniors can earn up to 12 college credits TUITION FREE or at a reduced tuition cost. 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.
