Flathead Valley Community College will host an informational session on its Running Start program for the community August 2 at 6 p.m. in the large community meeting room in the Arts and Technology Building on the FVCC campus.
The Running Start program provides eligible high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to get an affordable start on their college education by earning college credits while still in high school. Some courses offer dual credit opportunities which allow students to gain high school and college credits simultaneously.
Last fall, the FVCC Board of Trustees approved piloting a new tuition program for Running Start. The program provides in-district high school students the first six Running Start credits at no cost in tuition and institutional fees. Subsequent credits are offered at a significantly reduced cost.
Running Start registration for fall semester at FVCC will begin August 13. Courses will begin August 27. For more information, visit www.fvcc.edu/runningstart.html, or contact Elizabeth Romain at 756-3847 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
