NEOSHO, MO.--- Administrators at Crowder College say the majority of the students that go to Crowder straight out of high school, use the "A" Plus Program.
It is financing from the state to help students pay for college, if the student meets the requirements while still in high school.
Crowder officials say the biggest change to the "A" Plus Program is the amount of years students can use the funding.
In the past, it could be used for a total of 6 semester, now it must be used with 4 years after graduating high school and will only pay for 105% of classes required for degree from any 2 year public college in Missouri.
Students will be limited on the number of extra courses they can take.
Director of Admisssions Jim Riggs says, "There are some pluses and minuses to that. Students often have developmental classes and those are going to be added into the 105% total."
Students must maintain a cumulative G.P.A of 2.5, but now students will not be monitored until after their second semester.
Those who take college courses in high school, will no longer have those classes counted as an "A" Plus semester. Meaning, the grant can pay for more classes while in college.
