KINGMAN - Mohave County high school seniors graduating this spring may be eligible for grants that would give them free tuition at Mohave Community College and permit them to take up to seven credit hours in courses this summer. Early Start covers the cost for courses that lead toward a certificate or degree program. This is not applicable to dual enrollment courses but does apply to classes taken on various MCC campuses and to Distance Education (Internet) courses. Students in approved home-schooled programs or are MCC GED graduates also may be eligible for the tuition grant for up to seven credit hours of college-level coursework within one academic year. Summer classes begin the week of June 2. High school graduates can take skills training courses as part of a certificate program, earn university transfer credits or begin an associate degree program at MCC. College officials will work with Kingman High graduates who don't graduate until June 5 to help them make up for the first week of lost class time. With MCC credits now set at $54 apiece, Early Start can save students up to $378 in tuition and even more for those students who take those courses at a state university. For more information on Early Start, contact the student services/counseling office on the nearest MCC campus. Students wishing to register for summer classes may do so on any campus between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday. For more information, call the Kingman campus at (928) 757-4331
