Running Start is a program that allows 11th and 12th grade students to take college courses at Washington's 34 community and technical colleges. Students earn both high school and college credits for these courses and may attend full time at the college, or part time at both the college and the high school. Running Start students and their families do not pay tuition. They are responsible for mandatory fees, books and transportation. Students receive both high school and college credit for these dual credit classes.
Becoming a Running Start student is a big decision and taking college courses during your high school years is not for everyone. Please spend some time to thoroughly read through the Running Start program information on the college websites listed below, as this will help you determine if you are ready for college level work. After you’ve decided that you want to enroll in the Running Start program, you MUST complete steps 1- 4 before scheduling a follow up appointment with your counselor to discuss Running Start options and sign paperwork (RSEVF). Students typically begin the application process in April for fall admission to the program.
Attend the Running Start info session held at BHS in February of each school year, or an info session sponsored by the college you plan to attend for RS.
