Terra State is committed to establishing strong partnerships with local school districts to maximize students’ postsecondary credit opportunities during high school. Therefore, Terra State presents Our Pledge to ensure school districts have the flexibility they need to offer a College Credit Plus Program that is in the best interest of their students.

Our Pledge to Access!

Terra State is committed to assisting you in establishing a variety of 15 and 30 credit hour pathways. Once a pathway is agreed upon by the College and your school district, the College pledges to offer pathway courses in your school building during Fall and Spring semesters if one of the following conditions is met:

  • The school district employs a qualified faculty member; or
  • The school district identifies 12 or more eligible students to register in a course, the College will provide a faculty member.

If neither of the conditions are met, students may enroll in pathway courses on the campus of Terra State or through distance education. It is important to note students are not required to follow established pathways and may enroll in up to 30 credit hours per academic year. School districts may partners with more than one institution to offer a pathway.
