Step to college program accepting high school students for courses at Fresno State

The Step To College Program at California State University, Fresno is seeking qualified high school juniors and seniors for the spring 1999 semester.

Eligible participants will be allowed to take one or two university courses with a nominal fee of $6.00 plus book expenses.

Interested students must maintain a high school GPA of 3.0 or better and apply to the program no later than Nov. 20, 1998.

Terrell Fortner, program coordinator, said the Step to College Program allows high school students to get a headstart on their college education

“They experience the university environment, explore subjects not offered at their high school, improve time management and study skills, and participate in the university’s many academic and cultural activities,” she said.

Students admitted to the program may enroll in one or two general education classes per semester.

“These courses are offered during the late afternoon or evening hours, so participation in the program will not conflict with their high school schedule,” Fortner said. “The credits earned will be accepted at any accredited college or university.”
