Running Start Policy

High school students with Running Start credits at the time of application are considered first-term incoming students as long as they attempt no university-level coursework after high school graduation. Running Start students must meet first-year application deadlines and Whitworth's first-year admission standards. Running Start credits are accepted as transfer credits based on the receipt of oficial academic transcripts from the community colleges attended. Courses in which a student has received a grade lower than "C," as well as vocational/technical courses, non-college-level courses, and incomplete courses are not transferable. A maximum of 64 semester credits (96 quarter credits) may be transferred from the community college.
