Dual Enrollment Opportunities

Project Running Start (Community College System of NH)

Project Running Start is the dual enrollment/dual credit/concurrent enrollment program offered by the Community College System of NH (CCSNH). This is a design/tool used by the system to offer high school students transcripted college credit for courses offered by their local school district. For a course to be considered for this dual credit option certain conditions must apply. For example: The teacher must meet or exceed the hiring qualifications for CCSNH faculty, the course work and materials must meet the college level content standards, etc. As for the Student, for $150.00 per course, the student receives all the benefits and resources of any other CCSNH student. At the successful completion of the class they will have both a high school credit and a college transcripted credit. The transcript from the college does not indicate that the student took the course at a high school. It will indicate that the student successfully completed the college course indicated on the transcript. The term Running Start is best thought of as a vehicle through which students can take college courses at their high school at a reduced tuition cost.
