Running Start

What is Running Start?


Currently Enrolling Students for Winter Quarter, 2017

Registration for classes begins in November and classes start January 3, 2017.

Plan Ahead

Also we are currently accepting applications for Spring Quarter and Fall Quarter of the 2017-18 School Year.

The Running Start Program is an opportunity for eligible Washington State high school juniors and seniors to take college-level classes tuition-free.

  • Students earn dual credit — both high school and college credits which may be applied towards high school graduation and an associate’s degree, certificate, or transfer credit.

  • Running Start is available fall, winter, and spring quarters.

  • Students learn in a college setting and have hundreds of different classes to choose from — allowing flexibility in scheduling. 

  • Running Start students can opt to take classes both at the high school and college (part-time Running Start), or solely take classes in the college (full-time Running Start).
