Test to Determine Eligibility
To determine eligibility, students must take the Running Start placement test. Please see Testing link for more information.

If you have taken the placement test at another college or are using your Smarter Balanced Assessment scores, turn in your Running Start application AND a copy of your test scores to the Running Start office. Do not send application and scores separately.
