Early College.

How Does the Storm Early College Program Work?

Through the Storm Early College Program, high school students can get a head start on earning a college degree while completing their high school requirements.

Dual Credit allows high school students to earn both college and high school credit simultaneously. Dual credit classes are taught in the high school by high school faculty during standard school hours.

Dual Enrollment allows high school students to also enroll in college courses. Dual enrollment classes are taught by NHSC faculty, either on campus or online and take place at the college outside of standard school hours.

Early College students will complete the application process with the help of the high school counselors or the Storm Early College Coordinator (SECC). Upon admittance to the Nueta Hidatsa Sahnish College (NHSC), the students will begin registering for their respective courses. Students must achieve a grade of “C” or higher in either Early College program to receive credit from NHSC.

It is the responsibility of students to verify the transferability of the courses with their higher education institution of choice. Upon admittance, NHSC student program advisors will assist you with this process.

Minimum Requirements to Access Early College Courses

Students are required to have a computer with reliable internet connectivity, word processing, presentation, and spreadsheet software. Access to printer, copying machine, and a scanner are not necessary but may aid in the student in coursework. An NHSC student email account will be created and sent to the students upon acceptance to the college itself.
