TWIN FALLS — The College of Southern Idaho is launching a new program to allow high school seniors to take auto body, welding, drafting and food processing classes.

The pilot program, called Expanded Technical Dual Credit, will accept a limited number of students for this fall, the college announced Friday.

The Idaho Department of Education’s Fast Forward program will pay $75 of the $130 per credit tuition.

The rest of the cost will be split between the CSI Foundation and the student. Students will be offered zero interest payment plans for their portion, if needed.

Depending on the technical program a student chooses, they’ll take classes for one or two semesters.

Those who successfully complete the program will earn basic technical certificates or industry certifications. They’ll also have the option of continuing on to work toward an associate’s degree.
