Beginning immediately CE students who have completed 6 or more SLCC concurrent enrollment credits, earned a 3.0 or better GPA, and are US citizens, will be automatically awarded the CE Transition Waiver. That waiver will be applied the first two semesters they register for courses at SLCC after high school graduation. The amount will vary depending on the number of credits their register for at SLCC after high school. For 6-8 credits they will be awarded $500, for 9-11 credits $750, and for 12+ $1000. More information about the waiver, including frequently asked questions, can be found at http://www.slcc.edu/concurrentenrollment/Students/transition-tuition-waiver.html.
