To comply with federal law, we are required to ask for your Social Security Number (SSN) or Individual
Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN). We will use your SSN/ITIN to report Hope Scholarship/Lifetime tax
credit, to administer state/federal financial aid, to verify enrollment, degree and academic transcript records,
and to conduct institutional research. If you do not submit your SSN/ITIN, you will not be denied access to the
college; however, you may be subject to civil penalties (refer to Internal Revenue Service Treasury Regulations
1.6050S-1(e)(4) for more information). Pursuant to state law (RCW 28B.10.042) and federal law (Family
Educational Rights and Privacy Act), the college will protect your SSN from unauthorized use and/or disclosure.
By signing the front of this application, I understand and agree to all of the following statements:
1. This application serves as a universal permission slip. Some classes and/or clubs will have field trips and by signing this form, I am aware of the
possibility of the Running Start student traveling away from Everett Community College for the educational and/or extracurricular purposes.
2. Students will follow and adhere to the Student Code of Conduct.
3. Students must maintain a 2.0 GPA. If grades are below a 2.0 GPA for three quarters, the student could lose the Running Start Funding.
4. Running Start does not pay for non-tuition costs such as books, fees, parking, transportation, and tuition for classes under the 100 level. Fee
Waivers are available for eligible students by filling out a Fee Waiver Application and providing documentation.
5. All Everett Community College courses will become part of the student’s permanent record. Only students have access to their own college grades
and records. To obtain student grades or records, parents/guardians should work in cooperation with their student.
6. As a public, state institution of higher education in pursuit of academic excellence and the advancement of intellectual discourse, Everett
Community College welcomes the expression of diverse and opposing views and opinions that challenge and foster the expansion of student
minds, often pushing the boundaries of comfort. This adult environment includes diverse and potentially irreconcilable viewpoints expressed
through language, course readings and material both in and out of the classroom. Instructors are not required to substitute assignments if the
student chooses not to complete them.
7. Instructors are not notified who is a Running Start student. Students are not expected to share this information unless they so desire. In accordance
with Federal Education Right to Privacy Act (FERPA), instructors will not notify parents/guardians when a student is failing or not attending a class.
8. Students are responsible for meeting all high school graduation requirements and for determining how high school and Everett Community College
courses meet two-year and four-year college requirements and specific program requirements.
9. Students are responsible for arranging their college schedule so it does not conflict with their high school schedule. Instructors are under no
obligation to grant exceptions for high school commitments/activities which conflict with college classes/assignments/expectations.
10. Before changing your schedule you should consult with your high school counselor.
11. Running Start students are not permitted to “Audit” a class.
12. If a student withdraws after the second week of the quarter a “W” grade will appear on the student’s college transcript and no credit is earned. If a
student does not officially withdraw, s/he may receive a 0.0 on their permanent college transcript. It is not desirable to have a college transcript with
many or a pattern of “W” grades.
13. The maximum number of credits paid by Running Start is based on high school enrollment. You must complete a quarterly Running Start
Enrollment Verification Form. This form will indicate my maximum credit eligibility.
