High school students can get a jump-start on college by taking part in Mohave Community College’s Summer Bridge program.

Incoming high school juniors and seniors can fill out an Early Start Scholarship application through the college and get $486 knocked off the price of two classes, which would usually cost $528. This means the cost to the student is just $21 for each class – a 92% savings.

This program also creates a smooth transition to college for high school students, and they gain more awareness of MCC’s resources. These include a better understanding of college advising, financial aid, tutoring and MCC’s free math readiness program.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for high school students to get college credits at a huge discount, and get their foot in the door to get a feel for college and what MCC offers them,” said MCC President Michael Kearns.

The Summer Bridge Program classes offered to high school students for college credit this summer are Psychology 101 and Sociology 131.

The psychology class is Monday-Thursday from 8:30am-9:50am, while sociology is offered Monday-Thursday from 10:00am-11:20am.

Both classes are schedule to run from June 5 – July 20.

Students earn college credit for these classes. Online textbooks are provided for free. Students are encouraged to sign up soon because space is limited.
