College Credit

SST has numerous opportunities for you to earn college credit while completing your requirements for high school graduation.  Many of our courses teach the same material and have the same requirements as classes you would find in a college classroom.

College credits earned through SST are highly regarded by colleges, universities, and training programs throughout the U.S. and can save you thousands of dollars in tuition while strengthening your academic and professional credentials.

DUAL CREDIT:
Dual Credit is a higher education initiative that empowers students to enroll in college courses offered by colleges at a significant reduction in tuition while attending SST.

Students enrolled in any of the college courses listed below may earn real college credits on a college transcript while meeting high school credit requirements.  The college credit may be used to continue at the school that granted the credit or may be transferred to other colleges.  Essentially, students who participate in Running Start courses are beginning their freshman year of college while enrolled at SST.

The dual credit courses offered at SST during the 2017-2018 academic school year are as follows:
