Early College Program

Attention high school seniors!

Here is your chance to earn college credit that might also count toward your high school requirements! Speak with your guidance counselor about enrolling in the North Country Early College Program at WMCC.

What is Early College?

The Early College Program allows high school seniors and selected juniors an opportunity to enroll in special courses and programs at either our Berlin campus or in Littleton at our Littleton Academic Center. In addition some courses are available as online courses. All these courses give students marketable skills and a head start on earning college credit.

Successful completion of the course means you will have college credit to use at WMCC or to transfer to another institution. Furthermore, if your high school gives its approval, a course can also be counted toward your high school requirements. In the past, some students have been allowed release time from high school to attend a course at WMCC.

Selection Process

  • North Country high school senior status or selected juniors
  • Available seats will be given to students with suitable academic backgrounds and those who exhibit the maturity level to deal with adult situations.

Required Approvals

  • Parental approval
  • Guidance (advisor) sign-off at school
  • High school principal approval

Approval Form

Early College courses are available for one-half the cost of tuition, plus fees, and any required supplies and materials. Books are an additional cost. Students can apply for courses that are offered in the fall, spring, or summer semesters. This offer cannot be combined with any other CCSNH scholarship or voucher.
