What if I’m enrolled in a vocational program or at a Skills Center? Running Start students enrolled in college vocational programs or at a Skills Center may qualify to exceed the 15 credit enrollment without incurring tuition charges. Check with your high school counselor/advisor.
What should I do if I have too many credits? You have a couple of options. One, you can drop the extra college or high school classes or choose to pay the additional tuition and fees. Your college counselor can help you add and drop college classes and figure out how much tuition you would pay for the extra credits.
Or you can use the Running Start Enrollment Verification Form for parental approval to go over the state-funded credit limit and pay tuition.
Why do I need to fill out a CCS Enrollment Verification Form? This form has information about the number of college credits you want to take through Running Start and the number of high school credits you are earning at the same time. Your high school counselor uses this information each quarter to determine whether you have gone over the maximum free number of credits allowed by the state.
If you have too many credits – generally more than 15 -- you will be charged tuition for them by the college you attend as a Running Start student.
Where do I get an Enrollment Verification Form? The form is available at your high school Counseling Office.
