What are the steps I need to take to become a Running Start Student?

Can Running Start Students take evening and on-line classes? 

Do College credits earned through Running Start transfer to Washington Universities?
Yes.  As with all the college credits, once you leave Washington State the out-of-state Universities can choose to accept or not.  It is best to get information directly from out of state universities. 

How many Credits can I take?
Students may take up to 15 credits per quarter (full-time) depending on the number of classes they take at the high school during the same quarter. Students who qualify for free and reduced hot lunch and provide the college with documentation do not have a limit on the number of credits they can take for free.

How are college credits awarded for high school classes? 
5 college credits are equivalent to 1 high school credit (the high school determines what is applied to high school requirements).
