Excel in CTE Initiative (SB155)

Excel in CTE Initiative (SB155) Learning Opportunities for Career Technical Education

The Excel in CTE Initiative (SB155) authorizes the State of Kansas to pay tuition charges for approved tiered career technical courses at two-year institutions. Courses designated as Excel in CTE-eligible will be available to high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors at no cost except textbook and program fees (if applicable). 

Excel in CTE Initiative (SB155) classes now qualify for tuition coverage based on these factors:

  • The class must be categorized as a "tiered" class by the Kansas Board of Regents (KBOR). 
  • The class must be tied into a career or technical program at the specified two-year college or technical institution.
  • The class must have had enrollment in the prior year.

When enrolling students in Excel in CTE Initiative (SB155) classes, please observe the list details. Per KBOR, each two-year college and technical institution now operates with an individual list of Excel in CTE Initiative (SB155)-approved classes. The following list has been determined by KBOR as the Excel in CTE Initiative (SB155) offerings for Barton Community College.
