Missouri Community Colleges are being notified that the state might reduce reimbursements for the “A-plus” scholarship program. The program gives High School graduates who meet certain criteria reimbursements for two years of classes at a Community College in the state. Education officials say schools should prepare their students for a reduction of about three or four credit hours per student. If implemented the reduction would take effect in January at the earliest. The reason the reduction might be necessary is because the number of students using A-plus money is increasing, making the program more expensive for the state.
