Advanced Placement / College Credit
University credit may be granted in several subject areas to the student who completes a college-level course in high school and receives a qualifying score under the AP Program, sponsored by the College Entrance Examination Board. We also award credit for college courses taken during the high school years.
Running Start programs in Washington and Hawaii allow juniors and seniors to attend college courses numbered 100 or above, while completing high school. Running Start students can complete a substantial number of their first two years of college credits early, and it is possible for a motivated student to earn both a high school diploma and a two-year college associate's degree simultaneously.
