College Start - College Credit for High School Students


The College Start Program at Pratt Community College was started as a partnership with area high schools to help their students get a jump start on their college career. These students are provided the opportunity to earn college credits while still in high school. High School students are eligible for reduced tuition on all courses (excluding EduKan) and may take Career Technical Education classified courses for free (see Excel in CTE eligible courses (pdf), includes Edukan offerings).CS Application Button

There are three ways that this is accomplished:

1. Area high schools offer courses at the high school with instructors that are certified through PCC to teach college credit.

2. Area high school students come and take classes at PCC just as a full-time college student would.

3. All high school students may take online PCC classes on their own time. Students can take classes through PrattOnline using Canvas or through EduKan.
If your student is interested in participating in the Pratt Community College College Start Program please see your high school counselor or contact the College Start office at 620.450.2217 or
