To participate in Running Start at Green River, students must meet all of the following:
- Be enrolled through a public high school district. Students who are home schooled or attend a private school are encouraged to contact their local public school district for instructions on their enrollment procedures.
- Be a high school junior or senior, according to grade level placement policies of the district the student is enrolled through.
- Be at least 16 years old upon admission to the program, or turn 16 during the first quarter of enrollment in Running Start.
- Meet minimum placement requirements, see below for more information.
Students must be eligible for Engl& 101 to participate in Running Start. Many students can use an unofficial high school transcript showing at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA through a minimum of three semesters (through placement reciprocity), Smarter Balanced Assessment scores, or complete the College Success Assessment at Green River. Visit the placement page for more information on all placement options.
There is no required math placement for students to be able to participate in Running Start. However, students are strongly encouraged to continue math courses even if they have met their high school's math requirement for graduation. Stopping out of a math sequence can make it difficult later on to continue with the next level of math. Students may complete math at the high school or decide to take math at Green River. Either way, it is recommended students continue with math. Students may use any method of placement on our placement page for math.
