Running Start - Earn College Credit in High School





Pelham High School has developed partnerships with the Community College System of New Hampshire (CCSNH) and Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) providing students with the opportunity to earn college credits prior to high school graduation.  

These courses are taught at the college level by Pelham High School teachers who have met or exceeded the hiring qualifications for adjunct faculty (usually a Master's Degree) and have agreed to meet the college level standards set forth by both the CCSNH and SNHU. 

Running Start - The Running Start Program is offered through the Community College System of New Hampshire (CCSNH) and allows for high school students with junior and senior status in enroll in select college courses.  The CCSNH sets all required fees, currently $150 per course and tuition is paid directly to the college.

SNHU in the High School - In collaboration with Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU), qualified high school sophomores, juniors and seniors may participate in college credit opportunities.  SNHU sets all required fees, currently $100 per course (plus $25 for science lab credits) and tuition is paid directly to the college.

Dual-Enrollment College Credit Opportunities have several advantages:

      • Reduces cost of a college education
      • Prepares students for the academic transition from high school to college
      • Encourages more students to pursue a college education
      • Demonstrates to college admission offices a willingness to take rigorous courses       

Students receive an official college transcript for the credits earned from the respective college. The college credits earned through these programs may be used toward completion of a degree, diploma, or certificate at the college(s) in which they were earned or may be used to transfer credit to other colleges or universities throughout the country.  Please note that the determination of transfer credit is at the discretion of the receiving institution. 


Please Note: Running Start and Dual Credit Courses have attendance policies defined by the respective colleges.
