College Courses for High School Students: Bellevue, Washington

Bellevue College:

Running Start provides academically motivated students an opportunity to take college courses as part of their high school education.

Students may take just one class per quarter, or take all of their courses on the BC campus. If you are eligible for the program, you will earn both high school and college credit for the classes you take.

Classes taken on the college campus as part of the Running Start program are limited to "college level" courses (most classes numbered 100 or above qualify).

Tuition is paid for by the school district. Books, class related fees and transportation are the responsibility of the student.

Running Start was created by the Washington State Legislature in 1990 and is available at all community and technical colleges in the State of Washington.
