The Early Start Credits (ESC) provide an exciting opportunity for Grade 12 students registered in New Brunswick’s Anglophone high schools to select from a range of challenging courses and earn post-secondary credits in their final year of high school. ESC will provide a post-secondary experience online with classmates from many other places and students will have the option to have time built into their high school schedule.

Eligible students must be on track to receive their required 17 credits to graduate and can include up to 2 courses from participating New Brunswick institutions. Students are responsible for tuition and associated costs for the ECS courses they register in, however, financial support may be available through the application process at each participating Post Secondary Institution.

After high school graduation, New Brunswick Student Financial Assistance is available to eligible students continuing their post-secondary studies.  Details on funding available after high school is provided in the following links:
