High school sophomores and juniors interested in enrolling in Running Start classes at Clark College beginning in fall 2013 can attend one of two information sessions from 7-8 p.m. Jan. 23 or Feb. 6 in the O'Connell Sports Center at the college, 1933 Fort Vancouver Way.

Running Start allows eligible juniors and seniors to earn college credit while they fulfill their high school graduation requirements. Students attend Clark classes along with "regular" college students. The program can significantly reduce the cost of a four-year college degree.

Running Start students pay for books, transportation and some fees, but do not pay full Clark College tuition. Fee waivers and limited textbook assistance are available for those demonstrating financial need.

Parking will be available in the college's red lots on the east side of Fort Vancouver Way and in the purple lot on the west side of Fort Vancouver Way. Directions and parking maps are available at Clark College. For information, visit clark.edu/runningstart or call 360-992-2366.
