Running Start Program

Earn transferable university credits before graduating from high school!

Corpus Christi College offers the Running Start Program, a concurrent university course enrollment program that enables high school students to take university-level courses while still attending high school.

The program is designed to provide post-secondary opportunities for high school students looking for new challenges through enrichment or accelerated programming.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

  •     Opportunity to do advanced coursework and get a head start on post-secondary studies (“running start”)
  •     Receive university credit prior to high school graduation
  •     Benefit from a gradual transition to university through early exposure to university-level academic work and through interaction with university-level instructors and students


PROGRAM DETAILS

  •     High quality instruction - All courses are taught by a university professor
  •     Flexible delivery - Courses can be delivered at our College or on your high school campus. Class times are within your current school schedule or immediately after school
