SALT LAKE CITY -- Students earning college credits while attending high school will pay more for those credits if a legislative measure that passed the Senate becomes law.
SB 162, sponsored by Sen. Stephen Urquhart, R-St. George, will shift some of the costs of concurrent enrollment classes to high school students. Urquhart said the costs for the classes have become greater and high school students need to help defray some of those costs.
"It makes sense for students to help pay for some of the costs," Urquhart said. He said the costs will still be reduced, but said it forces high school students to have more skin in the game.
The measure now goes to the House.
