Running Start is a statewide program that allows eligible high school juniors and seniors to attend college tuition-free while earning a high school diploma. Students enrolled in the program could transfer their college credits to a college or university that offers four-year degrees, or gain professional and technical skills to enter the workforce.
Nine percent of all junior and senior high school students in Washington State are enrolled in Running Start. Last year, Running Start students and their parents or guardians saved over $40 million in college tuition combined.
The priority date for Running Start applications for Fall Quarter 2011 is May 1, 2011.
Information packets and applications will be available at the Running Start Information Night, high school counseling centers, the Running Start office at Olympic College, and on the web (www.olympic.edu/RunningStart).
