Early College Start Program

High school students are eligible to take college credit classes through ACC's Early College Start (ECS) program. These students are able to enroll in ACC and receive "Dual Credit," a credit which counts as a high school credit as well as a college credit. Students who live within the ACC District are eligible to take ECS classes free of charge; those outside of the district must pay $40 per class.
