Tuition & Fee Rates

The Running Start program provides eligible high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to get an affordable start on their education by earning college credits while still in high school.

The first six credits are offered at no cost for in-district students*, and subsequent courses are offered at a significantly reduced cost. Some courses offer dual credit opportunities which allow students to gain high school and college credit simultaneously.”

Once students have taken their 6 free Running Start credits, subsequent credits are charged at 50% of in-district tuition costs, based on the FVCC 2014-2015 Tuition and Fee Schedule below*:
