Dual Enrollment Programs
The Running Start Program allows qualified high school teachers the opportunity to offer college-level courses to students in the high school environment. Their close collaboration with our college professors and teachers allows interested high school students to get a running start and earn college credits for a mere $150.00, which is 80% less than the current cost of a 3-credit course in the CCSNH System. Many of these college credits are transferring to post-secondary schools all around the nation. Ask your high school teacher or guidance counselor about what courses are being offered at your high school!
Early College Program
The Early College program is a partnership with local area high schools enabling juniors and seniors to enroll in college classes at LRCC (at 1/2 the tuition rate!) earning college and high school credits while continuing their high school education and activities. Students have access to any LRCC course on the course schedule as long as: 1) the student meets any pre-requisite/s for the course, 2) the student has the approval of a high school guidance officer or equivalent and 3) there are available seats in the course.
Cost: 50% of in-state tuition rate (X # credits). Books, fees and supplies are not included. For information or to enroll, contact Wayne Fraser firstname.lastname@example.org or 603-366-5272.
College Accommodations for Declared High School Students
All high school students presently attending classes at Lakes Region Community College in Laconia, can receive college accommodations when they have disclosed their diagnosed condition to the Disability Coordinator and produced the appropriate documentation that will validate said condition. The reasonable accommodations that are written for students taking college level classes are determined by the Disability Coordinator after reviewing the appropriate documents.
In college level classes, the curriculum is not modified to meet the needs of the high school students. Those students are expected to demonstrate the same level of understanding of course material as all other students in the class. High school IEP's/504's are not incorporated at the college level. However, to ensure success for these students, they are urged to meet with the college Disability Coordinator before they begin the college course in order to determine what reasonable accommodations will apply and what resources are available.
