Central Washington University is proud to provide Running Start and College in the High School/Cornerstone to students across the State of Washington.
Running Start allows eligible juniors and seniors to enroll in tuition-free college courses at Central Washington University during the fall, winter, and spring quarters. Students may attend on campus or online and earn high school and college credit.
College in the High School is a state funded way for high school juniors and seniors to earn college credit and fulfill their high school graduation requirements all at the same time.
Cornerstone is the exact same as College in the High school but under Cornerstone the parents/students pay for the college credits at a significantly reduced rate. Sophomores, juniors and seniors are eligible to take college classes using this model.
For more detailed information about either program please select from the menu bar on the left hand side of this page.
