The Big Deal About Running Start

February 12, 2021

Running Start is a statewide program that allows high school juniors and seniors to attend community college tuition-free, earn college credits, and transfer to most four-year colleges and universities in Washington.

The program gives students—and their families—a chance to start the journey to a four-year experience debt-free. For high school juniors and seniors in Washington State, earning an associate degree at the same time as their high school diploma and transferring to a university as a junior saves at least $8,000.
