BOONEVILLE, Miss. (AP) — A community college in Mississippi is making it easier for students to take classes this summer.

WCBI-TV reports Northeast Mississippi Community College plans to use money left over from COVID-19 relief funds to offer free tuition for all students.

The college’s president, Dr. Ricky Ford, says the funds are available to students taking anywhere from three to 12 credit hours during summer sessions that start June 1 and July 5.

The deadline to apply is noon, May 14.
