Running Start

Running Start Procedure for SHS Students

  • Call Peninsula College (417-6340) to make arrangements to take the ACCUPLACER test.
  • Take the ACCUPLACER Test or submit proof of approved alternate placement (qualifying Smarter Balance Score or high school transcript) to the college by mid-April
  • Bring passing score sheet to your Counselor by mid-April. By turning this score sheet in to your Counselor, it serves as your Declaration of Intent to participate in Running Start.
  • Make a Running Start pre-advisory appointment to meet with your Counselor.
  • By mid-May meet with your High School Counselor to complete the Running Start process.
  • By early June turn in planning form and the RSEVF to Peninsula College; also turn in complete Peninsula College application and High School transcript.
  • Peninsula College advisors will meet with new Running Start students during June; students will be notified of the dates.

If you do not follow this process and meet these deadlines you will have to wait until the counselors have time available in September to complete the planning form. This may be after classes begin at Running Start so do not delay.
