Are you looking for ways to pay for your college education? Check out dual enrollment options through LeTourneau University. Their online courses are available to all high school students, regardless of residence.
While this option is less expensive than attending a university, it's still more expensive than homeschooling or dual enrollment that's financed by your state. Still, this is a Christian University, so the worldview may align with yours better, making it significantly more attractive in the long run. The pricing is the $90 per credit hour.
Because they accept students in other countries, this is a perfect opportunity for military or missionary families, and others living overseas. Overseas families do need a reliable internet connection. They must also take into consideration that classes are based on Central Standard Time in the US, which is important for all homework submissions.
There are perks for doing dual enrollment through LeTourneau. It includes an awesome scholarship opportunity for dual credit students who would like to attend university at their Longview, TX campus to study after high school graduation. The scholarship is worth $64,000 and is open to all dual credit students who complete one of our dual credit classes with a C or better, and meet the regular entrance requirements of the university.
Here are the details, from their brochures.
Dual Credit Scholarship, awarded to all eligible LETU Dual Credit students.

LeTourneau University has marvelous scholarships, and one thing they offer is a Homeschool Endowed Scholarship. That homeschool scholarship IS stackable with their Dual Credit Scholarship. However, it is not stackable with their merit scholarship, and instead they will grant the larger of the two.
If this sounds like it might be a good fit for your family, contact Sharleen Hunt for more information, at 903-233-4334 or SharleenHunt@letu.edu.
