    Information about Running Start:
    Running Start is a program for High School Juniors and Seniors to take college classes at Washington two-year colleges and earn high school and college credit at the same time. Tuition is free for a maximum of 15 credits per
    quarter in college-level courses numbered 100 or higher. However, the number of college credits each student may take free of tuition costs depends on how many classes the student is concurrently taking at the high school. Students are responsible for tuition for pre-college courses (numbering below 100) and any credits that exceed their allowable limit. Students are responsible for the cost of books and transportation; however, fee waivers for these expenses (not including transportation) are available for students who qualify for free or reduced lunch.

    Please Note: Running Start students must take full responsibility for keeping up-to-date on what's happening at Ingraham High School, including important dates and deadlines (AP/IB Tests, Winter Ball, Senior Prom,
    Ordering Graduation Supplies, Graduation Rehearsal Dates and Times, Senior Meetings and any other Senior related events). Counselors are not able to track Running Start grades or attendance.

    North Seattle College will be holding information sessions for students and families interested in Running Start.
    • Monday, March 4
    • Thursday, March 14
    • Thursday, March 21
    • Wednesday, April 10
    • Monday, April 15
    Location: CC1161, North Seattle

    Registering for Next Year Classes:
    Counselors have started going to English classes to register students for next year’s classes. Students will look at the classes they have already taken and the graduation requirements to help them chose classes for next yea. Students will work one-on-one with their school counselor when selecting classes.

    There will be lunchtime sessions to make any changes to the classes you selected. These lunchtime sessions will be in the library March 19-22, 2019. This will be the time to change your schedule for the next year. We will also open the portal during advisory time in June. We will not be offering schedule changes in Fall 2019.

    See the Counseling Weebly for the full policy.
