SCC Colville Center hosts Running Start information night
Posted Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Spokane Community College’s Colville education center will host a Running Start information night on Wednesday, September 3, showing high school juniors and seniors (and their parents and guardians) how to earn college credits while completing high school academic requirements.
The information night begins at 6 p.m. at the SCC Colville Center, Rendezvous Theater, 985 S. Elm, Colville, Wash. Additionally, the information night will broadcast live to centers in Republic (63 N. Keller, Suite B), Ione (208 Blackwell St) and Inchelium (14 Community Center Loop Rd.) and counselors will be available by phone.
High school students and parents will get the opportunity to meet current Running Start students to hear firsthand about their college experiences. Running Start counselors/coordinators also are available to explain how students can enroll in the program.
Open to area public high school juniors and seniors, Running Start through Community Colleges of Spokane allows students to earn college credits while attending high school at the same time. The program is available at all CCS campuses and education centers. These college credits transfer to most four-year state colleges, and most classes are tuition-free, allowing families to save on college expenses.
Running Start information nights are free and open to the public. For more information, call 1-800-276-8040, ext. 6710 or visit www.ccs.spokane.edu/runningstart.
