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 Clark College campus, earning both high school and college credit for all completed courses.
Students in the program attend regular day or evening college classes. Running Start students are accepted as a regular college student by Clark College instructors, and are expected to complete the same coursework requirements as their college classmates.

Why Running Start
The Running Start program allows high school juniors and seniors to earn college credits
while completing their high school education—saving students money while advancing
their education. Students are able to attend college, at minimal cost, while still
living at home as a high school student.
Students are able to select courses that challenge them academically and provide real-world applications. Many students earn their associate’s degree and leave prepared to start a career or transfer to a four-year institution to pursue their bachelor’s degree.
Before you can qualify for the Running Start program, you will need to apply to Clark College.
