Information for Current Running Start Students
Tuition and Fees
Running Start funding covers tuition only for college-level credits (courses numbered 100 and above) during Fall, Winter & Spring quarters. Running Start students owe tuition for classes numbered under 100 and for college-level credits over 15 per quarter. Tuition will be charged for combined high school and college credits exceeding 120% of full time. This chart is a guideline of possible high school and college combinations that fall within the 120% funding cap. Fee Waiver students are exempt from the funding limits but must pay tuition for classes numbered under 100.
