Running Start allows eligible juniors and seniors to take classes to earn college credit while they fulfill their high school graduation requirements. Students attend regular Clark classes during the day or in the evening, along with “regular” college students. They can choose from a full range of academic and professional/technical courses as long as the students meet the criteria and the classes are college-level. Students pay for books, transportation, and some fees. Waivers and limited textbook assistance are available for those demonstrating financial need.

Individuals who need accommodation due to a disability should call 992-2314 or 992-2835 (TTY), or e-mail two weeks in advance.
