**For Immediate Release**
Attention High School Juniors and Seniors!

Goodwell, OK - Jump start your college career by enrolling concurrently at Oklahoma Panhandle State University. Eligible high school seniors attending Oklahoma high schools may take advantage of free tuition for up to six hours of credit this fall at OPSU. Concurrent enrollment offers students an opportunity to jump start their college careers, and the tuition waiver provides incentive by lowering the cost. It was made available July 1, 2005 after Senate Bill 982 passed, and the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education set the eligibility standards.

Requirements for eligibility include seniors with ACT/SAT scores in the 50th percentile or those with a high school grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 and who rank in the top 50% of the class. The high school senior will be responsible for the cost of fees and books, which is approximately $144.17 for 3 credit hours and $288.33 for 6 credit hours.

The free tuition does not apply to high school juniors, and the admission standards for those students remain the same. Juniors must have an ACT/SAT score in the 72nd percentile or a high school GPA of 3.5. They will be charged full tuition, books, and fees, which is approximately $371.57 for 3 credit hours and $743.13 for 6 credit hours.

By taking advantage of the tuition waiver, eligible seniors may save approximately $225 for 3 credit hours, and over $450 for 6 credit hours. Fall classes begin Wednesday, August 16. For more information, please contact Dara Short, Concurrent Enrollment Management, at 800-664-OPSU Ext. 1374 or 580-349-1374.
