    Are you a high school student who's a junior or senior? Will you attend a college when you graduate high school?

    The Running Start program at EWU can help you take advantage of Washington state laws that let you get a head start on your college education.

    When you take classes at EWU as a Running Start student, they may count toward two different goals: once towards fulfillment of your high school graduation requirements and once for college credit. Some Running Start students have even managed to take enough classes to graduate college two years early.
