The Running Start program enables high school students to take community college courses for dual high school AND college credit. Students with disabilities are expected to demonstrate the same level of understanding of course material and meet the same minimum skill performance standards as all other students receiving college credit. This means the curriculum will not be modified. Accommodations, not modifications, are the name of the game. Disabilities Services for Running Start programs
