Getting A Jumpstart on College Credits
i

Every Idaho student has an opportunity to earn college credits while they’re still in high school, and they can pay
for those credits using money from the state’s Advanced Opportunities program. The program provides $4,125
to every Idaho student in grades 7-12 attending an Idaho public school. The money can be used to help pay
for concurrent credit classes, dual enrollment classes, advanced placement tests, professional technical certifica-
tions and more. Here’s a guide to how to take advantage of Idaho’s Advanced Opportunities program.

                                               All 10th graders now take the PSAT, a precursor to the SAT
                                               college entrance exam. The PSAT highlights a student’s
                                               strengths and areas where they need improvement. In areas
                                               where students need improvement, they can link their results to
                                               Khan Academy and work to improve their knowledge and skills.
                                               All juniors take the SAT, a college entrance exam. Learn more
