Running Start


Fee Waiver

Effective fall quarter 2009, Running Start students attending community and technical colleges must pay mandatory college and/or student voted fees as established by the community and technical college. Colleges must, however, waive mandatory college and/or student-voted fees for eligible low-income Running Start students. (Established by the Washington State Legislature: RCW 28A.600.310 as amended by Chapter 450, Laws of 2009, ESHB 2119.)


Eligibility and Application for Fee Waiver:

A Running Start student shall be considered low-income and eligible for a fee waiver upon proof that the student is currently qualified to receive free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program/School Breakfast Program administered by the K-12 public school district. To apply, complete the attached application and submit a copy of the Free and Reduced Status Letter from the school district and obtain a signature verifying eligibility from the school district official.


Other acceptable documentation for fee waiver:

1) Student has been deemed eligible for free or reduced-price lunches in the last five years.
2) Student is a foster youth.


Student Responsibilities:

1) Supply waiver documentation and signature.
2) Notify Running Start staff of family financial changes that may result in waiver eligibility.
3) Pay mandatory fees if not eligible for low-income waiver.

A copy of the fee waiver application may be found here.
