This program was changed significantly during the 2022 legislative session.  It is no longer associated with the A+ Scholarship and financial need is now required for eligibility rather than being used to determine award ranking.


Beginning with the fall 2022 semester, high school students may be eligible to receive a scholarship that covers the tuition and fees for their dual credit or dual enrollment courses. To qualify, students must demonstrate financial need and be taking dual credit or dual enrollment courses from a Missouri college or university in addition to meeting the program’s eligibility criteria.  The full list of eligibility criteria is available under For Students below.


The application is available electronically through the State Financial Aid PortalStudents will be required to create an account in MDHEWD’s Student Portal to access the application. Information about the Student Portal is available here.
