Running Start Program

Program Information

The Running Start Program allows 11th and 12th graders who are enrolled in a Washington state public high school and who meet eligibility requirements, to enroll in college courses. To apply for Running Start here at Shoreline, please visit our application page and follow the steps listed there.

Students enrolled in Running Start can continue taking classes at their high school or may decide to only take classes at the college. These classes not only count as high school credit, but also count as college credit. This allows students to get a “running start” on their college education and potentially reduce the amount of time and money they spend on college after graduating from high school.
