Running Start Academic Advising

All SPSCC students are assigned a primary advisor and Running Start students will work with the advisor matched with his or her school district, detailed below. If enrolled in a professional/technical program, it is recommended students connect with faculty advisors in addition to Running Start advisors.

Running Start advisors

Advisors are available for walk-in questions during posted hours or for 30-minute, long-term planning appointments which are scheduled via a student’s Compass account. Non time-sensitive questions and electronic form submissions can be sent to
