Prospective Freshman Admissions

Running Start Policy

High-school students with Running Start credits at the time of application are considered first-time freshmen as long as they attempt no university-level coursework after high-school graduation. Running Start students must meet freshman-application deadlines and Whitworth's freshman-admission standards. Running Start credits are accepted as transfer credits based on the receipt of official academic transcripts from the community colleges attended. Courses in which a student has received a grade lower than "C-," vocational/technical courses, non-college-level courses, and incomplete courses are not transferable. A maximum of 64 semester credits (96 quarter credits) may be transferred from the community college.
