Start College Now and Early College Credit Programs
Start College Now and Early College Credit Program allow high school students to earn post-secondary credits at colleges and universities. Start College Now is available to students in grades 11-12 in the fall and spring semesters.  The Early College Credit Program is available to students in grades 9-12 in the summer, fall and spring (students are considered to be in grade 9 immediately upon completion of grade 8).  Both programs develop a college and/or university transcript for high school students.  Once students are enrolled in these programs they work solely with the college/university. 
The deadlines for applying for these programs is below.

Start College Now:
  • March 1 for fall courses
  • October 1 for spring courses
Early College Credit:
  • February 1 for summer courses
  • March 1 for fall courses
  • October 1 for spring courses

Applications for Start College Now and the Early College Credit Program must be signed by a parent/guardian for students under age 18 and the student’s counselor.   
Please keep the following state requirements in mind regarding these programs.
  1. The District will only approve payment for courses that are not comparable to ECASD courses, as determined by ECASD.  If a course is approved, ECASD will pay for tuition, fees, and books.
  2. Approved courses may only be used to meet ECASD elective graduation requirements. Students who have already met their elective graduation requirements are required to pay 25% of the cost of tuition, fees, and books.
  3. Students who fail a course in either program will be required to reimburse ECASD for all course costs (tuition, fees and books).
  4. Students may earn up to 18 post-secondary credits TOTAL between the two programs during their high school careers.  Each post-secondary credit will earn the student ¼ ECASD credit.
  5. Applications will not be accepted after the due date, and they must be submitted to their counselor.
  6. There is no guarantee that a student will be able to enroll in the post-secondary course after it is approved by ECASD.  The most common reason for a student not being able to take a course after ECASD approval is that the post-secondary institution does not have space in a class.  If a student is not able to be admitted to a class for this reason their application may not be amended.
 Please contact your counselor with any questions you have regarding the program.
