Submit a Running Start Enrollment Verification Form (EVF) from your high school counselor (every quarter you attend as a Running Start student). This will determine how many tuition-free college credits you are allowed. You must pay tuition for credits above the allowable amount and for classes below the 100 level.
Your high school counselor will advise you of the classes you need, to meet your high school graduation requirements. For students not seeking a high school diploma, have your counselor indicate this option on the EVF.
Attend your mandatory college event
- SCC Running Start students must attend a New Student Orientation (NSO). During the NSO, you will learn Running Start details, campus expectations, meet with a counselor and enroll into classes.
- SCC Running Start student must attend a Campus Tour coordinated through the Running Start Center.
Your payment portion
Running Start students pay for mandatory fees, books and supplies. Most mandatory fees are waived for low-income Running Start students, who can provide a reduced lunch eligibility document/letter anytime within the last five years.
If you need to drop a class or withdraw from college, it is your responsibility to begin the drop/withdrawal process by contacting the Running Start Center.
Your SCC grades are the same grades for college and high school. Grades are sent to your high school after the end of the quarter. Students can find their college grades on their ctcLink student center.
