The Running Start program is one of many dual enrollment options available at Lake Washington Institute of Technology. Students classified as high school juniors and seniors may apply. Eligible students may attend college full-time and/or take classes at the high school and the college. Students earn high school and college credit simultaneously for college level courses. Tuition is covered through Running Start, therefore Running Start saves money. In addition, Running Start students get started on college early, so they save time as they work towards their educational goals.
