Sanborn Announces New College Dual Enrollment Opportunity With Southern New Hampshire University
Sanborn Regional High School is excited to announce a new partnership with Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) that will significantly increase the number of college-credit opportunities available to its students.
For the 2016-2017 school year, Sanborn is participating in the SNHU In The High School Program, a dual enrollment program where Sanborn students can earn college credit while still in high school by taking Sanborn courses that have been approved by SNHU for both Sanborn and SNHU credit.
SNHU has approved seven current Sanborn courses and teachers for this program for next year:
Since these courses are already part of Sanborn’s Program of Studies, registration will occur through the normal course selection process that Sanborn’s Counseling Department is currently working on with all students. Students who wish to enroll in the college credit option with SNHU will have the option to do so when the class starts in the fall. The cost to students for the college credit option will be $100.00 per three credit course and $25.00 per one credit lab. This cost represents a savings of 90 percent of traditional undergraduate day tuition.
This SNHU partnership is a welcomed addition to the college-credit opportunities that are currently available to Sanborn students through one of the following programs:
Northern Essex Community College Dual Enrollment: Sanborn students can dually enroll in two courses: English Composition 1 and the College Success Seminar. Both courses are taught during the school day by NECC instructors.
Great Bay Community College Project Running Start: Sanborn students can dually enroll in up to four Sanborn courses that are eligible for GBCC credit: Drawing, Statistics, TAC Math, and Senior Critical Analysis. These courses are taught during the school day by Sanborn teachers.
Advanced Placement: In partnership with the College Board, Sanborn offers the following AP courses: Biology, Calculus, Chemistry, Government, Language and Composition, Literature, Spanish, and US History. Students may earn college credit based on their score on an end-of-year exam, depending on which post-secondary school they enroll in. These courses are taught during the school day by Sanborn teachers.
