Opportunity Tuition Waiver

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



If you recently graduated from or attend a Scurry County High School, you may be eligible for the Opportunity Tuition Waiver.

The Opportunity Tuition Waiver covers tuition and certain fees (building and general use fees only) for a maximum of fifteen (15) credit hours per semester for Scurry County high school graduates and twelve (12) credit hours per semester for Scurry County dual credit students.

High School graduates must be registered in at least twelve (12) credit hours for the fall semester immediately following his/her graduation. Dual credit students may enroll up to 12 credit hours.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic situation and Scurry County’s Stay home and Stay Safe orders, Western Texas College will temporarily suspend Service to the Community Volunteer Hour Requirements for the Opportunity Tuition Waiver.

In order to be eligible for the Opportunity Tuition Waiver starting in the Fall 2020 term, Scurry County Graduates and Scurry County Dual-credit must complete and submit the following items.
