What is Running Start?  Running Start is a program that allows motivated students to take college courses as part of their high school education starting their junior year of high school.  Most students can attend part-time or full-time and will earn both high school and college credit for all completed courses.  The cost per credit is greatly reduced and fee waivers are available.

Where do I find out more?  Join Clark College for these informational sessions if you want to learn more about the Running Start program at Clark College for the 2022-23 school year.  You will walk away with knowledge about how to apply, who is eligible, the cost savings, and the pros and cons of Running Start versus other high school college credit programs.

When is it?  Join Clark College for informational sessions that are open to students and their families to learn more.
