EVERETT — High school students and their parents can learn about Everett Community College*s Running Start program at an information
session 6 p.m. Feb. 9 in Gray Wolf Hall, Room 166.
College staff will discuss how to apply, options for full and part-time enrollment, student life and special program options, such as the ORCA program in marine biology.
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 for 1-18 credits is free.
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 this session, EvCC encourages students to
contact their high school counselors.
The deadline to apply for Running Start at Everett Community College
for Fall quarter 2010 is May 1. EvCC serves more than 700 high school
students through Running Start.
