A new law in Michigan provides expanded educational opportunities for students living near the state’s borders. Govern Rick Snyder signed legislation Tuesday that allows students to receive high school or post-secondary credits through dual enrollment programs from an out-of-state institution if that institution is within 20 miles of the Michigan border. Students wishing to take advantage of the program must also be enrolled in a Michigan public, private, or charter school district that shares a border with the college’s home state. Snyder says the law will help reduce barriers and lower the overall cost for students seeking post-secondary education.
