Summer “Contingency” Designation Lifted; Enrollment Open as Announced

On Wednesday, May 10, 2017, Governor Bullock signed House Bill 2, effectively locking in our budget for the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 program years.

As previously announced, the final budget provides MTDA with the same level of funding that we received for the 2015-17 biennium. This is $660,000 short of our funding request which was designed to continue to allow for growth in student enrollments.

For Summer 2017, we will run the original credit and credit recovery programs as announced on our program briefing pages, located here: original credit and credit recovery.  Please review these pages carefully, including the request for summer credit recovery programs to fill out site survey so we may plan our summer staffing.

As part of our resource management plan, we request that schools be mindful and deliberate when enrolling students and take the likelihood of student success into account before registration.

As always, we expect schools to work through the entrance counseling form with students before enrollment in the original credit program.  We have experience that students that do not receive the relevant information in the entrance counseling form do not understand the time-intensive summer format, ultimately diminishing the chances of student success.

MTDA staff is currently working on a rollout of Fall 2017 information related to program availability, enrollment request deadlines, and any changes based on our available resources.
