Superintendent’s Message

Keeping the Scholarship

 In previous articles, I have mentioned the increase in the number of our students that have enrolled in higher education coursework. This increase is due largely to our students taking more college level courses and to the lucrative work opportunities students are attracted to with an associate degree from a technical school. Again, the best part of a two year technical program is that there is relatively little cost to the student, especially with those who are scholarshipped due to their GPA. However, there is a negative in regards to retaining those scholarships. 54.6% of all students at Tri-County Technical College lose their scholarships for their second year. Across the state, the number reaches 67.8% at technical schools and 51.5% at all schools.

So, why are half the students in the state not retaining their tuition scholarships?  One simple answer is that students have not taken rigorous enough courses while in high school forcing them to take remedial classes in college. Remedial courses do not count towards the 30 credit hours required to maintain the scholarship for the following year. Therefore, students must choose to take additional hours or lose the scholarship. Additionally, we hear from students they were not ready,  unprepared or even lacking direction as reasons for their loss of scholarship. This can often be overcome simply by enrolling in higher education courses while still in high school. The dual enrollment or Advanced Placement experience alone can prepare students for the demands of higher education. Finally, we know that higher education doesn’t often allow for test re-takes, late assignments or unspecific excuses. The responsibility for being successful at the next level lies entirely with the student. At BHP, we are thankful we can offer most of our students coursework that will prepare them for the next level while still providing some safety nets. Our goal is to equip our students to be better prepared for success in higher education.
