College in the High School FAQ
College in the High School through WVC is an opportunity for high school students to earn college credit while still in high school.

Many school districts qualify for state funding to help cover the cost for CHS courses. However, if your district does not have access to these funds, you will be subject to paying a deeply discounted tuition charge. All CHS courses are $35 per credit hour. This is deeply discounted from the usual $109 per credit hour. Tuition for one course is $175, and is assessed a $5 administrative fee. Total cost for one course is $180.
