High School seniors in good academic standing and who live in the Chemeketa Community College service area qualify for this free program.

This means tuition, fees, and textbooks are all covered. A set of 15 general education, transferrable courses are available to students within Chemeketa’s service district. These are all accelerated five-week college courses for spring term that will begin on May 4th. Registration will be on a first-come-first-served basis. Chemeketa is calling this opportunity “BOLT to Chemeketa.”  (Named after the school’s mascot.)

Interested students should contact their respective high schools and speak to the school’s representative, often a guidance or career counselor. They must also meet the following criteria:

  • Students must be seniors who have met high school graduation requirements.
  • Students must be in good academic standing.
  • Students must have access to a computer/laptop and Wi-Fi.
  • Students are limited to one* five-week course for spring term.

*Some students may elect to enroll in an additional two-credit FYE (First Year Experience) course if planning to attend Chemeketa after high school graduation.

Chemeketa is thrilled to be able to launch this BOLT program for high school seniors.
