What grade level are students eligible to enroll in eStart courses?
What is the cost of tuition?
eStart tuition is $150 per course, provided that the course is taken concurrently for high school credit. The cost of tuition does not include the cost of textbooks or other course materials.
Are eStart courses college or high school level?
Courses offered through the eStart program are 100% online college courses taught by CCSNH college faculty or adjuncts. Courses offered through the eStart program are taught at the college academic level with the college grading system. Online classroom discussions and course content assume a level of maturity, attitude, experience and academic preparation consistent with a college course. Students should verify with their high school that the college course will meet a high school requirement.
Are students required to purchase a textbook?
Courses may require the purchase of a textbook or other course materials. Please verify requirements through the instructor, course syllabus, or college bookstore. See the Textbooks and Transcripts page for specific information.
Do students receive a college or high school transcript?
Students receive a college transcript from the CCSNH college offering the course. High school credit is awarded through the Virtual Learning Academy Charter School (VLACS). The student or parent must contact the college and VLACS to obtain transcripts. See the Textbooks and Transcripts page for specific information.
Are there specific times during the week when students must be online?
Most assignments are “asynchronous,” (students are not online at the same time and can work on the course according to their individual schedules) and some classes may involve “synchronous” sessions, where the class meets in a virtual classroom on a specific day at a designated time. The course syllabus, found on the Course Schedule page, details the requirements of each course.
Is the course Syllabus available to view before the course begins?
Each course syllabus can be viewed by clicking the “course syllabus” link below the course title on the Course Schedule page. The syllabus defines the learning objectives of the course, the learning resources and technologies and the assignments and assessments that will enable the student to accomplish the learning objectives.
Are services available if I have an IEP or 504 Plan?
Students with disabilities are expected to demonstrate the same level of understanding of course material and meet the same minimum skill performance standards as all other students receiving college credit. Students in need of college level accommodations should contact the Coordinator of Disabilities Services. For more information please go to, Disabilities Services for Running Start Students
