Running Start and Similar Programs

Students who earn credits from Running Start (either Washington’s Running Start or a similar program from another state) will transfer no more than 14 Running Start credits and be considered first-year students for purposes of financial aid eligibility if they complete General Studies 175 and 176 (i.e. “First-Year Seminars”) during their initial year of enrollment at Whitman (See Financial Aid Website). At the end of their first term of enrollment, students may notify the Registrar and Financial Aid that they wish to add the remainder of the Running Start credits to their academic record.
