Running Start legislation FAQs

Running Start allows eligible high school juniors and seniors to take tuition-free classes at Spokane Falls Community College, Spokane Community College or at our off-campus education centers in Colville, Inchelium, Ione, Newport, Pullman and Republic.  These classes earn college credit AND high school credit simultaneously. Running Start students can attend college full or part time. Running Start gives students who possess good study skills, self-discipline, and motivation a wonderful opportunity to seek greater academic challenges through a wide variety of classes to choose from.

It also provides a great alternative to students who find that the traditional high school experience is not meeting their needs. Want more information? Read on or check out a Running Start Information Night coming up!
