I-BEST is a program designed to help students achieve their goal of a college education in short-term professional and technical programs by providing extra supports in the classroom for students who may qualify. I-BEST pairs support and professional-technical instructors in the classroom to concurrently advance student gains in basic and professional-technical skills. Classes are in programs that build toward degrees and/or certificates and prepare students for employment.
The I-BEST instructional model requires two instructors in the classroom at least 50 percent of the class time. The I-BEST model also seeks to create clear "pathways" for students that will help them to earn a livable wage and become employed in high-demand jobs.
Tuition varies depending on the program. The Opportunity Grant may provide additional funding options.
