*MTCC AmeriCorps Leader - Flathead Valley Community College
Flathead Valley Community College's Running Start Program provides eligible high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to get an affordable start on their education by earning college credits while still in high school. A small percentage of the overall high school population in Flathead and Lincoln Counties are enrolling in a dual enrollment program. MT dual enrollment students are more successful in a number of areas when enrolling in a post-secondary program after high school graduation. MT dual enrollment students have a 16% higher rate of first year retention, higher freshman GPA and earn more credits their first year of college compared to their non-dual enrollment peers. Studies show that dual enrollment students are more successful than non-dual enrollment students when entering post-secondary education after high school graduation. This position would increase the number of students enrolling in Flathead Valley Community College's Running Start Program. This position would also increase the number of students receiving career and academic advising while still in high school, which will assist in high school students having a more focused pathway prior to enrolling in a post-secondary institution. There are a high number of college freshman students with an undecided major, which could increase the amount of time and money it takes to complete their program.
