Home » Undergraduate Education » Admissions » Running Start/Early Admission Program

The Running Start/Early Admission Program is intended to encourage highly motivated and academically talented high school juniors or seniors to advance in their schooling by supplementing their regular high school work with selected college courses. Interested applicants must comply with the regular admissions application process. After consultation with their high school counselor and the University Admissions staff, qualified candidates may be admitted on a part-time, non-degree status. Continuation in the Early Admission Program depends upon the maintenance of a 2.0 grade point average at the University and approval of the University in consultation with the high school counselor. Federal financial aid is not available for Running Start/Early Admission students.

A student seeking Running Start/Early Admission should submit the following items to the Admissions Office: a) a letter of recommendation from the principal, teacher, or the guidance counselor; b) an official high school transcript and c) scores from the Scholastic Aptitude Test.
