High school students and their parents can learn about Everett Community College’s Running Start program at information sessions March 19, March 26 and April 16.
On March 19, the information session is at 6 p.m. at EvCC’s East County Campus, 14090 Fryelands Blvd. SE, Suite 373 in Monroe.
The March 26 and April 16 information sessions are at 6 p.m. at EvCC’s Henry M. Jackson Center Auditorium, 2000 Tower St. in Everett.
College staff will discuss how to apply, options for full and part-time enrollment, student life and special program options, such as the Ocean Research College Academy (ORCA) program on the Everett waterfront that emphasizes local marine research.
Running Start is a partnership program between colleges and high schools. The program is available to eligible high school juniors and seniors. Students can apply college credit to their high school graduation requirements. Tuition is free for up to 15 credits per quarter.
ORCA is an early college academy for high school students, who can earn up to two years of college credit for free while completing their high school education. Most students graduate with an associate’s degree in addition to a high school diploma.
In addition to attending one of these sessions, EvCC encourages students to contact their high school counselors.
The priority deadline to apply for Running Start at Everett Community College for fall quarter is May 1. EvCC serves more than 900 high school students through Running Start.
