No. You must meet with a Running Start advisor prior to plan out your courses for the upcoming quarter.
No. You must meet with a Running Start advisor. Following this meeting, you will then receive your EVF via email.
No. You are only pre-popped in your first quarter at Running Start. After your first quarter, your courses will be determined in your advising appointment with your Running Start advisor.
It depends on when in the quarter you would like to do so.
You will need to submit a withdrawal form to our office. Once the form is approved (typically takes 3–5 days), withdraw yourself from the unwanted course. Your course will be taken down from your Canvas at that point. If you withdraw from a course after the drop date, you will receive a “W” grade on your transcript.
We will not accept appointment-making calls or emails from parents, as we believe it is the student’s responsibility to set these important appointments. We will make an exception to this if the student has a valid health concern or other serious matter where making a call would not be possible.
No. You must have an appointment with a Running Start Advisor over Zoom or in-person in our office on Cheney campus.
In the midst of the quarter, you will need to ask your teacher about your current course grade. At the end of a quarter, following finals week, you can find all your course grades on your EagleNet account. All Running Start students follow the same grading policies as general EWU students. For more information regarding EWU grading policies, please visit Grade Information (Students).
Note: Your Running Start Advisor is not informed of your current course grades and will not know your final grades until they are posted at the end of the quarter.
Yes. Being a part of Running Start means that you have the opportunity to take college courses earlier in your life than some of our general student population, but that doesn’t mean you are treated any differently by teachers or staff. EWU expects all its Running Start students to adhere and follow all rules and regulations set by the university.

To stay at EWU after Running Start, you’ll need to have the following on your transcript:
Remember that one quarter at EWU is equal to one year at high school.
The Center of Academic Advising and Retention (CAAR) is where you’ll meet with an advisor who is specialized in advising students for a specific major or degree focus. For example, if you want to major in computer science, you’ll speak with a CAAR advisor who specializes in working with computer science students and their degree paths.
If you have accrued 90 credits through Running Start (or are at a junior class standing), you can declare a major. A major is your continued area of focused study for the remainder of your bachelor’s degree.
Follow these steps to continue on at EWU for the remainder of your four-year degree or college experience.
Speak with the other college or university, prior to the end of your senior year in high school, to confirm your desire to transfer.
Apply to the other college or university.
If you decide to continue your education at a different college or university, you will need to do a few things to prepare yourself for the transition.
When you fail a course at EWU, you can take the course again for a better grade. The most recent grade earned in the course will be given consideration on your transcript. The first instance of the course will appear on your transcript, but it will not be calculated into your final GPA.
If you want to drop a course and have no marks on your transcript, you’ll need to make sure you are doing that before the drop date. If you withdraw from a course after the drop date, you will receive a “W” grade on your transcript. While a “W” is not a negative mark, it is not in your best interest to have multiple “W” grades on a transcript.
If you have charges owed on your account, they could be from one of a few places:
An EagleCard is the EWU Student ID Card and it can be ordered through EagleCard Services in 120 Tawanka Hall.
