Chapter 14.Early Start Program

§1401.General Provisions

A.The Early Start Program is administered by the Louisiana Office of Student Financial Assistance (LOSFA) in accordance with a memorandum of understanding by and between the Louisiana Board of Regents and the Louisiana Student Financial Assistance Commission (LASFAC).

B.1.Description. The Early Start Program is established to provide funding to eligible Louisiana postsecondary institutions that enroll eligible 11th and 12th grade Louisiana public high school students in college degree, developmental, or work skills courses.

2.History. The program was established by the Board of Regents as the Dual Enrollment Program to provide funding to public postsecondary institutions that enroll eligible public high school students. Beginning the 2008-2009 academic year (college), the Board of Regents expanded the program to include members of LAICU that enroll eligible public high school students. Act 460 of the 2008 Regular Session of the Legislature provided for participation in the program by students enrolled in nonpublic high schools and home school programs.
3.Purpose. The purpose of the Early Start Program is to provide an incentive for qualified Louisiana high school students to prepare for a postsecondary education or career.

C.Effective Date. Early Start Program payments shall be made beginning with the 2007-2008 award year to postsecondary institutions for 11th and 12th grade students meeting the eligibility criteria set forth in this Chapter.

D.Eligible Semesters/Terms. The Early Start Program will pay for enrollment in each college course during each semester or term of the academic year. Early Start Program will not pay for summer semesters or sessions.

E.Award Amount. The Early Start Program will pay postsecondary institutions $100 per college credit hour, not to exceed $300 per course, for each course in which a student enrolled in a Louisiana public high school is eligible to enroll. The award amount shall not be paid on behalf of students enrolled in nonpublic high schools or in home school; however, beginning with the 2008-2009 Academic Year (College), the program allows participating eligible Louisiana postsecondary institutions to enroll eligible 11th and 12th grade Louisiana nonpublic high school and home school students at the same rate as the award amount that funding is provided for public high school students at these institutions.
