Running Start Program
Washington State University Tri-Cities is proud to offer the Running Start program for qualifying high school juniors and seniors. The Running Start program allows students to attend classes on the WSU Tri Cities campus and receive both high school and college credit simultaneously.
We partner with all Mid-Columbia high schools, along with surrounding school districts, including Prosser, Connell, Columbia, Kahlotus, Finley, Kiona-Benton, Omak and Grandview.
Students can take up to 15 credits per semester, tuition free. Students may attend WSU Tri-Cities full-time or combine their classes between the high school and WSU Tri-Cities.
