An increasing number of Granite State high school students are looking to save some money and get ahead at the same time. Through dual enrollment classes, high school students can take college level courses, receiving college and high school credit. The statewide Running Start program launched in 1999 through the Community College System of New Hampshire, seven community colleges in the state and their education centers. Through Running Start, high school students pay about $150 a course to earn college credit before graduating high school. In addition, Southern New Hampshire University has its own dual enrollment program, “SNHU in the High School.” Courses cost high school students $100 each.
