Transferability of Jump Start Courses

Dual enrollment courses taken as part of the Jump Start program are assigned a Montana University System (MUS) Common Course Numbering (CCN) designation. CCN was created by the MUS to provide students with a reasonable level of transparency and predictability for the transfer of courses and credits within the MUS.

Transferability to Non-CCN Schools

If you plan to attend a school that does not participate in the MUS CCN system you should visit with an advisor at that institution about the potential transferability. It is important to know if and how the school would apply the course towards the completion of a degree. It is typical that the school would accept transfer courses as elective-fulfilling, degree-fulfilling or an exact course equivalent. Only the accepting institution can verify how they would accept a course.
