13-28-37. Postsecondary enrollment--Responsibility for costs--Failing grade eliminates eligibility. Any student in grades nine, ten, eleven, or twelve may apply to an institution of higher education or a postsecondary technical institute as a special student in a course or courses offered at the institution of higher education or postsecondary technical institute. The student shall obtain the school district's approval of the postsecondary course or courses prior to enrolling. If, however, the student is enrolled in a nonpublic school or a tribal school, the student shall obtain approval of the postsecondary course or courses from the nonpublic school or the tribal school prior to enrolling, and if the student is receiving alternative instruction pursuant to § 13-27-3, the student shall obtain approval of the postsecondary course or courses prior to enrolling from the provider of the alternative instruction. If approved, the student shall receive full credit toward high school graduation as well as postsecondary credit for each postsecondary course. The school district or the state may pay all or part of the tuition and fees for a course approved for credit toward high school graduation in accordance with this section. The student is responsible for any tuition and fees not paid by the school district or the state and for any other costs involved with attending a postsecondary institution.
If a failing final course grade is received in a postsecondary course under this section, the student receiving the failure is no longer eligible to enroll for postsecondary courses under this section absent a showing of good cause.
