The Huskins program is a partnership between Johnston Community College and Johnston County Schools that provides high school students the opportunity to take free college courses taught by JCC instructors. Huskins courses are taught at the college level and are specifically scheduled during the regular school day, allowing students to earn both high school and college credits while remaining in high school.
"The purpose of the Huskins Bill cooperative program is to make available for the enrichment of high school students, college level academic, technical and advanced vocational courses not otherwise available to them.” G.S. 115D-20(4) These courses are generally offered on the high school campus, although some courses are taught on the JCC campus. High school students taking courses through the Huskins Program must demonstrate social maturity and a level of academic achievement to ensure success in college courses.
Huskins provides students an opportunity to get a taste of college life and rigor while still living at home with parental guidance. Huskins allows students to earn advanced undergraduate degree credits, provides accelerated time to college degree completion, and is an academic confidence booster. Best of all – Huskins provides free college tuition!
