College Advantage

Earn College Credit at Your High School.  Here's How:

  • On-site classes: taught either by a high school instructor with the College's credentials or by a full-or-adjunct instructor who travels to the high school. See below to find classes at your school!
  • Partnered Online classes: a 100% online college class supervised by a high school mentor.

All classes are offered for college credit when taken, but high schools decide which classes are counted as high school credit.  It is the student's responsibility to double-check with a high school official about dual credit.  Courses vary by high school.  Look for your school below! 

How to Qualify

The State of Kansas requires that high school students must be at least sophomores (10th grade) at the time the class begins.  

It has been difficult to provide placement testing at our partner high schools during the COVID-19 pandemic.  To address this challenge, Barton has identified an alternative option for placement into College Advantage/Partnered Online English and math courses, based on cumulative GPA or cumulative GPA and course grades.

At this time, this placement option is available only for College Advantage or Partnered Online courses, and only during the 2020/2021 academic year.

*Effective for the 2020 – 2021 academic year.  Retroactive placement or credit will not be given.

Students who do not meet these outlined requirements but want to try to take the course for college credit will need to follow our standard testing policy and make an appointment to test by contacting Lisa Peterson, PetersonL@bartonccc.edu (link sends email).

The retesting policy requires that you earn within 12 points of the placement score in order to retest.  Each student can earn one retest per semester.

Important:  Students who enroll but do not pay will be enrolled and will not be dropped automatically for non-payment.  Unpaid bills will create a "hold" on the student's account until taken care of in full.  This "hold" prevents transcript requests and enrollment in more classes.

How to Pay

Students have the full semester to pay for classes and may make full or partial payments.

  • On campus: check, cash, credit card, or money order. 
  • By mail (Do not mail cash or money orders.), Attn:  Karly Little
  • Over the phone by credit or debit card
  • Pay online or set up a formal payment plan through the Student Financial Center in the student’s MyBarton Portal.  Online payment includes a small fee.

The Boost Scholarship

The Boost Scholarship Application is a need-based scholarship available to high school students. The Boost Scholarship is available to students in Barton's seven-county service area (Barton, Ellsworth, Pawnee, Rush, and Russell counties, Stafford County north of US Highway 50, and northwestern Rice County).

New ways to qualify and apply for the Boost Scholarship are coming!  Check back for updates.

The Boost Scholarship pays for three (3) credit hours per semester at the $111/$118 tuition rate. The Scholarship may not be used for program fees or textbooks costs for classes.  If taking an online class, the student is responsible for the $32-per-credit-hour difference in tuition rates.  The Scholarship is only available for fall and spring semester classes and cannot be used during the summer.
