What is the School-Based Scholars program?

School-Based Scholars is NKU's dual-enrollment program that offers eligible high school students the opportunity to take college classes for dual credit at a reduced tuition rate. We serve public school, private school, and homeschool students from the Northern Kentucky region and beyond. We have partnerships with 41 high schools from 15 counties and growing. Our students can take classes at their high school (if offered), online, and/or at our Highland Heights and Grant County campuses.
