Applications are being accepted for West Virginia’s free community and technical college program.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports the state Community and Technical College System has debuted a website for West Virginia residents to apply.

State Development Office Executive director Michael Graney says a handful of college offerings were excluded from the free tuition offer, including those with lower participation rates and others that don’t point toward a specific degree.

Tuition grants are available to residents at least 18 years old who have completed a secondary program.

Recipients would have to pass a drug test each semester, maintain a 2.0 grade-point average, take at least six credit hours per semester and perform community service.
