  • Currently there are 26 students taking a total of 33 college dual enrollment classes this semester, with enrollment at UMFK, UMM, UMA and KVCC.  In the past, we have had the opportunity to apply for grants to offset the cost of these classes. At this point, we have not heard any information about grants, however it is early.
