What is Running Start?

Running Start is a statewide partnership between high schools and community and technical colleges in Washington. Whatcom Community College remains committed to serving local students through Running Start, the popular program for high school juniors and seniors. Running Start offers families significant cost savings as students begin their college careers.

  • Students may enroll simultaneously in high school and college classes, or solely 
    at the college.
  • Students receive both high school and college credit for classes completed at 
    the college.
  • Students do not need the permission of the high school to enroll in the program, the student and parents make this choice.
