Pratt Community College is another college offering online courses from which our students can benefit. PCC has a program called College Start that is available to high school students. Through this, some online courses that are used as general education requirements for most colleges and universities are available at a reduced fee to high school students. The current tuition rate for these courses is $79 per credit hour, and a payment plan is available. Course offerings vary from semester to semester, but often the fall semester includes such courses as Speech Communication, American History, American Government, Developmental Psychology, General Psychology, and Intro to Sociology. The spring semester often includes Public Speaking, English Comp II, American History, Intermediate Algebra, College Algebra, American Government, Developmental Psychology, General Psychology, and Intro to Sociology. All students are responsible for any books or additional fees required for their classes. (Some classes, such as College Algebra, may require a software access fee.) I am happy to visit with students and/or parents to determine the cost for any class.
