High School Students Dual Enrollment and Paid Tuition: Career & Technical Education SB155

If you’re a high school student interested getting help with your college tuition and go into a career that is in high demand here in Kansas, you need to explore Senate Bill 155 AKA the Governor’s Career & Technical Education (CTE) Bill.

Why it Matters

The main purpose of the bill is to stimulate growth in Career & Technical Education at both the secondary and post-secondary level in Kansas. The workforce in the state of Kansas currently demands more highly-technical and highly-skilled workers and Senate Bill 155 is focused on helping high school students coming into the workforce find and secure employment in these high demand careers.

What you need to know about Senate Bill 155

High school students interested in exploring careers in demand, taking advantage of dual enrollments and getting tuition reimbursement enrolled in college-level CTE courses need to check with the Kansas Board of Regents website by clicking here or contacting the college of enrollment for further info.


If you’re in high school, you need to check with your high school to take advantage of the dual enrollment or concurrently enrolled students (defined as a person, in grades 10, 11 or 12) program and meet the criteria set forth by the Kansas Board of Regents Policy. If you haven’t graduated from high school yet, you can still be officially registered as non-degree seeking student.
