  • To enroll, complete and sign the A+ Application and forms as instructed below from your student Chromebook. It is recommended that students sign up even if they are planning to go to a four-year college or not going to college. A+ is an opportunity for students to access after high school. It does not obligate them to use the A+ tuition reimbursement.

  • An A+ student may be eligible for scholarships from four-year colleges and universities.
  • The tuition reimbursement benefit is available to the A+ student up to four years after high school graduation.
  • Students graduating from a two-year school may be eligible for transfer scholarships to a four-year college or university.
